Sculpture featured at Keystone
A cast-iron sculpture by artist Coral Lambert is on display at Keystone College.
The 8-by-8-foot sculpture “Thunder Cloud” is located near the main entrance to campus. The work has been loaned to Keystone for two years as part of the recent Keystone College Iron Works/Arts on Fire celebration held earlier this month at the Scranton Iron Furnaces in downtown Scranton.
Keystone received a grant for $18,300 from Lackawanna Heritage Valley to help fund the Keystone College Iron Works program for local students and create a sculpture park for their iron designs along the Lackawanna Heritage Valley trail system in Lackawanna County.
