Foundry Pour

George Mummert is a nationally recognized sculptor, an educator and the founding Director of Keystone Art and Culture Center.
Mummert has worked with Yale University's Peabody Museum of Natural History and that led to a commission of 10 hominid skulls in bronze being cast at the Millersville foundry. Those skulls are now permanently displayed in the Hall of Human Origins at Yale. He was also commissioned to create a 21-foot bronze of Torosaurus at the front of the Peabody Museum of Natural History at Yale University; his working model for this is on display at Keystone. Local commissions include the life sized Tribute in Bronze honoring the legacy of Thaddeus Stevens, and the Fallen Firefighters Memorial at Station #3 in Lancaster City.
Mummert's experiences in sculpture and teaching students at Millersville fueled his interest in art education. He began shaping the vision for a community based arts center that would expand capabilities and broaden accessibility. A short time later, his chance encounter through private sculpture lessons with Dr. James Argires brought the vision into a reality. Through their love of the arts and Lancaster, neurosurgeon Dr. Argires and his wife Tasia offered to help start the Keystone Art and Culture Center.

About the Keystone Art and Culture Center

The Keystone Art & Culture Center, founded in 2003, is nonprofit corporation featuring both a bronze foundry and art gallery. KACC is housed in a renovated warehouse in Lancaster's Southwest neighborhood at 420 Pearl Street.
KACC was created to be a hub for Art in the community, with the goal of making art accessible and to provide opportunities to individuals within the community. Keystone Art and Culture Center has the only working educational bronze foundry in the area! Live bronze pours heat up KACC every 4th Friday. Also, each month the gallery has a different art exhibit by a variety of local, regional, and international artists.
Outreach projects have included leading the effort to create a youth inspired, designed and created sculpture garden on South Duke Street at the Martin Luther King Elementry School in downtown Lancaster. The unveiling is set for the Spring of 2012.
Keystone Art & Culture Center is supported in part by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, The National Endowment for the Arts and The Lancaster County Community Foundation.
