Liberty Arts Grand Opening 

When: Fri., March 16 2012

Cordoba Center, 923 Franklin St.—Nonprofits displaced by the collapse of the Liberty Warehouse roof last May continue to land on their feet a few miles east in the Golden Belt area. The Liberty Arts Foundry and Sculpture Studio holds its grand opening on Friday at the Cordoba Center for the Arts, adjacent to the new Scrap Exchange location. Liberty Arts held an aluminum pour in January at the old George Watts Hill Pavilion at the bottom of the condemned warehouse by the Durham Farmers' Market. Those works will be on display at the Cordoba Center opening; forging and glassblowing demonstrations also will be presented, and visitors can see their own computer designs cut out of metal on the spot. There's live music from LiLa and the Percolators, performing among the heavy foundry machinery. Yummies from Daisy Cakes, Loaf and Old Havana complement the requisite traffic jam of food trucks. The event runs 5:30–9 p.m. —Chris Vitiello
