Arts Center Holds Party to Celebrate Kiln Project

The Tyler Park Center for the Arts is seeking to raise $8,500 to support the kiln project. The kiln is about a third of the way constructed; the funds are needed to complete the project.

Tyler Park Center for the Arts is less than $2,000 shy of reaching its fundraising goal for a six-ton community kiln that will become a permanent fixture at the park.

On Friday, artists and supporters held a party to raise awareness about the project.

The arts center is seeking to raise $8,500 to support the kiln project. The kiln is about a third of the way constructed; the funds are needed to complete the project.

A fundraising page has been launched on Indiegogo. As of today, nearly $6,750 has been raised. The wood-fired kiln will be constructed on site. There's even a workshop in which students can assist in brick laying.

"This kiln will be a permanent fixture in Tyler State Park lasting years and experienced by many. Students from nearby high schools and colleges, professional artists, and adult students will come from all over our region to participate in the process of wood firing," the arts center website states.
