The Minds for History Institute holds an annual conference which brings together the most influential thinkers of our time for a series of Interactive exchanges among individuals whose minds have generated significant contributions in various disciplines from science to the arts. Staged at Arcosanti, the program also features an evening concert. Minds for History is a program of the Cosanti Foundation.
Each bell bears a unique design handcrafted by a skilled artisan. Original designs will vary from displayed sample. Read about the finishes below:
Patina Finish (Pictured):
The highly variable color patterns range from green to turquoise or from orange to red or with all shades mottled on the same piece.
The bell and its bronze components are steel brushed for a lustrous finish and burnished (flame treated) with a torch in order to bring out metallic bronze highlights varying from colors of gold to iridescent shimmers of blues and greens. An acrylic spray coating completes the finish making it resistant to oxidation. The luster brilliance and subtle highlighted patterns are artistically and randomly achieved, and therefore will vary from displayed sample.
