It's the Art All Night-Trenton Iron Pour! You remember the spectacle in 2010... Now be one of the fans who help bring it back in 2012!
The Art All Night-Trenton 2012 Iron Pour once again reunites the forces of Art All Night - Trenton with the AbOmInOg Intl. Arts Collective, who first worked with Art All Night in 2010. That year, the crew from AbOmInOg Intl. amazed spectators by forging steel live throughout the night, as one-story-high orange flames enveloped Trenton's urban backdrop. This year’s Art All Night-Trenton festival marks the second historic collaboration between these two dynamic art forces as they once again bring the mesmerizing art of a live iron pour to inner-city Trenton.
Your donation to this Kickstarter campaign will ensure AbOmInOg Intl. can once again thrill onlookers with their unique craft at Art All Night-Trenton 2012. Those who pledge, will walk away with an incredible, newly-forged and fresh-from-the-flames commemorative medallion that will actually be created at Art All Night - Trenton as you, and thousands of onlookers, watch it all happen right before your eyes.

What is Art All Night - Trenton?
Art All Night-Trenton is a 24-hour long arts extravaganza occurring annually on the 3rd weekend in June. AAN encourages any artist of any age, medium or skill level to submit one piece of art of their own creation for display in a gallery-like setting. It is free to submit art and free to attend. At Art All Night-Trenton 2011, nearly 900 artists of all ages, skill levels and mediums submitted work and more than 13,000 people attended!
Art All Night-Trenton is a catalyst for community development, shining a spotlight on our region’s artistic talent. The show includes and attracts artists of all ages and skill levels and particularly encourages children and amateur artists to be actively involved by contributing artwork and engaging in on-site activities.
Art All Night-Trenton has 5 major goals:
- Empower artists who would normally not have an opportunity to showcase their artwork in public with a venue to do so
- Build community by encouraging people of all different lifestyles, races and incomes to interact
- Foster social networking between creative people who have an interest in improving Trenton
- Showcase Trenton’s great architecture and development-ripe buildings
- Market Artworks’ classes, exhibitions, events, and volunteer opportunities.
Art All Night-Trenton is presented by ArtWorks, Trenton's downtown visual arts center. ArtWorks promotes artistic diversity by fostering creativity, learning, and appreciation of the arts. Our classes, exhibitions, and events make art an accessible experience for all. ArtWorks is a 501c3 non-profit organization serving the Trenton community for 27 years. The City of Trenton provides use of its Everett Alley facility to Artworks under the auspices of the department of Public Property and Recreation, Natural Resources and Culture in order to foster a thriving and diverse arts community.
Hundreds of Art All Night-Trenton volunteers help to recruit artists, attract patrons, prepare the venue, assist with the registration and hanging of artwork, provide refreshments, direct traffic, clean-up, and much, much more. Live music throughout the event is also donated by some of the area's finest performers!
The work of community volunteers is generously supported by a range of supporters and donors. Art All Night-Trenton is also sustained through the strictly voluntary donations of guests, whose support is critical to the success of this event.
Due to the extended cooling process required for these unique medallions, pickup will occur on Sunday, June 17 at Art All Night (675 South Clinton Avenue, Trenton, NJ) anytime between 10am - 3pm. If you are unable to pick up your medallion during those hours, we will relocate it to Artworks (19 Everett Alley, Trenton, NJ) for you to pick up at a later date.
