  • "Lamp on Table," Roy Lichtenstein

While working toward his master's degree in metallurgy at MIT, Dick Polich became involved with a Ford and Rockefeller Foundations-funded program to unite technology and art. He subsequently founded Tallix Foundry in 1968 and began a 40-year career of casting big-name artists' pieces into major works of metal. He has worked with Jeff Koons, Roy Lichtenstein, Frank Stella, and Hudson Valley resident Martin Puryear, among many others. The Dorsky Museum at SUNY New Paltz presents "Dick Polich: Transforming Metal Into Art," curated by Daniel Belasco. The show will feature 11 works by collaborating artists, a documentary about Polich's foundry, and a presentation of the materials and techniques of contemporary foundry work. The exhibition will run August 27 to December 14, with a public reception September 6 from 5 to 7pm. (845) 257-3844; Newpaltz.edu/museum.
