Astoria Queens New York based Modern Art Foundry 

is a third generation family owned and operated business established in 1932, and for the past 84 years has been providing sculpture services to artists and the art world.   With highly skilled crafts people, most of whom have spent twenty plus years with the company, Modern Art Foundry specializes in art casting services, primarily bronze and aluminum.  Modern Art Foundry also continues to provide conservation and restoration services, commemorative design services, and educational services.  All of these are part of our on going efforts to serve artists and those working in the arts all around the globe.

"It’s both an honor and a responsibility to walk in the footsteps of my grandfather and father.  To work for artists who command the world’s attention, and the many emerging artists too, who need our services to move their work through the casting process”.  Jeffrey Spring

Travelling around New York City you will find Modern Art Foundry’s castings along city streets, in city parks, and historical institutions.  As we head toward warmer days,here’s a few, go have a look:

Starting in Central Park you will find the iconic "Alice in Wonderland" and "Hans Christian Anderson" statues at Conservatory Water near East 75th Street.  Heading to Times Square you can give a salute to "George M. Cohan" and in Greenwich Village walk along side "Mayor Fiorella LaGuardia" at LaGuardia Place.

As you move to other parts of the city you can see  John Rhoden’s “Mitochondria” hovering outside Bellevue Hospital, and Judith Weller’s “Sower” stiching in the Fashion District (47th Street/Fashion Avenue).  Irving Marantz has two works on Park Avenue: “Triad” at 475 Park, and "Obelisk to Peace" at 3 Park.

Heading indoors at Saint Patrick’s Cathedral you will find sculptures by Adlai Hardin, Elizabeth Gordon Chandler, and Joy Buba, who also has portraits at Rockefeller Plaza and the American Museum of Natural History.

All of the works have in common, the time honored tradition of artist and foundry working together.

There are many more, including additional public locations, and private collections, museums and galleries.  Feel free to let us know your "cast at Modern Art Foundry" story -
