You heard that right, kids... the Art All Night-Trenton 2016 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 casting iron live throughout the night, as one-story-high orange flames enveloped Trenton's urban backdrop. In celebration of our tenth anniversary, this year’s festival marks the third historic collaboration between these two dynamic art forces as they work together to bring the unforgettable experience 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 on June 18th and 19th at Art All Night-Trenton 2016. Those who pledge will receive an one-of-a-kind, freshly cast commemorative medallion that will actually be created at Art All Night Trenton-2016 while you and thousands of onlookers, take in this truly unique form of artistic expression!

Art All Night-Trenton is a 24-hour arts and cultural extravaganza produced by Artworks, that takes place on the third weekend in June every year. AAN allows artists of any age, medium, or skill level to submit a piece of original art to be displayed in one of America’s largest pop-up art galleries, an opportunity that they may not be otherwise afforded. Children and amateur artists are encouraged to be actively involved by contributing artwork and engaging in a range of on-site activities. In 2015, over 1,200 artists from all over the tri-state area participated, and more than 25,000 people enjoyed their work in what was one our most successful events yet!

AAN is produced through the work of community volunteers, and is generously supported by a range of supporters and donors. Their efforts are also sustained through the strictly voluntary donations of guests, whose support is critical to the success of this event. Art All Night-Trenton is a catalyst for community development, shining a spotlight on our region’s artistic talent while serving as a springboard for the kind of creative thinking that will serve to elevate the profile of our great city. 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.

Risks and challenges

This will be the third iron pour performed by AbOmInOg Intl. Arts Collective at Art All Night. The other two have been wildly successful and have captivated the crowds attention throughout the night. Since we have done this before the logistics are all in place. We are seeking more funding this year to be able to perform more pours and have more medallions to sell benefiting Artworks Trenton.
