GUTS, A creative carving competition

This event will be held in conjunction with The Iron Pour, put on by The Steel Yard.

Join us for GUTS — a creative pumpkin carving competition for creative professionals. Graphic designers will go head to head against architects, and builders, and painters, and anyone willing to fight for the title of GUTS champion. 

Crisp fall air, pumpkin beer, molten iron, a design competition…what’s better than that? Well, you’ll be helping an incredible cause! GUTS and AIGA have selected Make-a-Wish as the national recipient for this fundraiser. Make-a-wish grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions.  

This year GUTS will be held in conjunction with The Iron Pour, an annual event put on my The Steel Yard. Artists harness the power of the Steel Yard’s custom built, iron pouring tilt furnace to pour over 2,500 pounds of molten iron. In the past, the Steel Yard has used liquid iron and the heat of flame to create ferociously erupting volcanoes, Viking funerals, and bubbling and brewing scientist labs before the eyes of the crowd. 

Tickets must be purchase through the Steel Yard. Tickets are $10 at the door for general admission and are first-come, first-serve. This event sells out every year.
