Video: Behind the Scenes at the Industrial Arts Center

Congratulations to the IAC! Readers selected the Industrial Arts Center for our first "Best Customer Service" online tourney.

The Industrial Arts Center puts artists and the public first. This Gulfport arts cooperative wins Patch's Readers' Choice tourney, which asked people to vote on the business that knows best how to treat people right.

The IAC was chosen in our Spring contest and so we went behind the scenes to find out how organizers create art, memories and lasting relationships with customers, artists and participants.

Watch our video and learn how you can create a glass masterpiece at the Industrial Arts Center. The IAC offers an array of classes for anyone of any age. For complete class information, check out the Industrial Arts Center's website.

Does the Industrial Art Center still need contributions for broken equipment? It would be very sad for Gulfport to lose such a tremendous resource.

Wow, I never knew you were there, I'm gonna have to check it out. I've cast metal and have a good bit of foundry experience but never did glass, it sounds very interesting.

Congratulations Lynn and Amy!!

The IAC is a non profit, so they're always appreciative of donations. I believe they got everything up and running again (the major equipment) but still have a need for materials. They will be open tonight for the Third Saturday Art Walk! And will continue fundraising. So, stop by if you can!

Congratulations to the IAC! Great work Lynn and Amy but let's not forget to Thank Jackie Ballard, Founder of the IAC. What a great and unique art opportunity!
