    The ASME Columbia Basin Section invites you to attend a tour of The Walla
    Walla Foundry at 405 Woodland Avenue in Walla Walla on Friday, October 24,
    2014 at 9:30 a.m. This world-renowned foundry has been casting
    contemporary sculpture in bronze and other metals since 1976. They work
    with artists such as Maya Lin, Jim Dine and Bob Arneson.

    about the foundry.

    The tour will last 1.5 to 2.0 hours. There are several areas on their
    campus where they pour the metal, perform welding, create the wax
    positives and add the final color to the metal. There will be a
    presentation by the architect including a slide show of current and past

    We will walk around the campus and, if interested, we can drive a few
    blocks off campus to the CNC milling building where they digitally carve
    large scale wood sculptures. The tour is limited to 20 members and guests
    (over 15 years of age). Please wear closed-toe shoes, sensible for
    walking. Safety glasses and ear plugs will be handed out at the foundry.

    After the tour, everyone is welcome to join us for a no-host lunch
    someplace in downtown Walla Walla. Location to be determined at the time
    of the tour. Suggestions welcome.

    For those that did attend this very popular tour a year ago, please
    indicate so in case we need to cut off registrations.

    Also, we can attempt to accommodate folks that may need a ride or be
    willing share a ride from the Tri-Cities - either as a driver or
    passenger. Let us know.
