"Iron Chef" sculpture competition at Steel Yard

Update Sept. 12: The "Iron Chef" competition has been postponed to Sept. 19 because of rain.

Original post: The Steel Yard in Providence offers its second annual “Iron Chef” competition on Saturday featuring four teams of metal artists racing to cook up steel sculptures. The organizers report: “teams are given a design challenge in the form of a phrase and a key secret ingredient that must be used in their creation. Winners of each round are determined by a panel of judges and face off in a final round to decide the 2009 Steel Yard ‘Iron Chef.’ Each sculpture is then auctioned off in this Steel Yard fundraiser.”

Team leaders are David Cole, Monica Shinn, Anna Shapiro and Aidan Petrie. Winners will be judged by WPRI Ch12’s Erin Kennedy, RISD’s Director of Public Engagement Peter Hocking, and artist Ed Rondeau.

“Iron Chef” competition, The Steel Yard, 27 Sims Ave., Providence, 1 to 5 p.m. Sept. 12. Raindate is Sept. 19.
