If you would like a gift when donating please check the commissions tab. This year the Iron Monkeys are raising $4,500 to help with the storage costs, incidentals, and the cost of the beanies, stickers and shirts we will be making. Our original goal of $6500 would still be nice as it will help us produce the art locally and would allow us to expand on any plans we come up with.
Founded in 2006, the Iron Monkeys are a metalworking collective based in Seattle, Washington. Known primarily for forging heavy industrial steel into intricate, delicate patterns, we have progressed from making small, stand-alone steel sculptures into creating large-scale multi-faceted gathering spaces which increasingly incorporate propane fire elements. Our pieces have been on display temporarily at the Burning Man Arts Festival, the Reno Mangrove Project, the Burien Interim Arts Space (B/IAS), Critical Massive, Seacompression, Seattle Burners Without Borders events, and Tacoma's First Night Celebration. Our pieces are permanently on display in Rainier Vista's Central Park in South Seattle, Whitaker Park, in northwest Reno, Nevada, and the backyards of some of their supporters. The money you give us will help us pay for storage, propane, and steel for our projects.
