Carrie Furnaces Photo Safari
- Get Tickets
The National Historic Landmark Carrie Furnaces, constructed in 1906, were the heart and soul of U.S. Steel's Homestead Works and are the only examples of pre-World War II furnace technology in existence.
Managed by Rivers of Steel National Heritage Area, this former industrial site is now the setting for photo safaris for both novice and experienced photographers alike.
The 3-hour photo safaris will be led by Ivette Spradlin, a Cuban-American photographer, video artist, and educator. She received her BFA in Photography from the University of Georgia in Athens, Georgia and her MFA in Photography from Tyler School of Art, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She has shown her work nationally and internationally, and has taught photography and digital imaging at colleges and universities in and around Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.
