New exhibit commemorates Bethlehem Steel furnaces

    A new photography exhibit aims to bring the defunct blast furnaces of Bethlehem Steel back to life.

    “Blast Furnace” will be unveiled Thursday at the ArtsQuest Center on the site of the former Bethlehem Steel complex.The group will use special cubes to mount the images and try to show what the blast furnace was like in the steel giant’s heyday.

    Organizers say the 2-foot by 2-foot cubes will be arranged in sets of eight to create smaller “living room”-like spaces. The Express-Times of Easton reports   the exhibit will be on display through January.
