When Lindsey Christina walks the grounds at Sloss Furnaces in Birmingham, she often finds “little pieces of art” that have escaped notice or simply been forgotten.

“I find things in sheds, in closets, under the viaduct,” she said. “I found an old rusty coin in the gravel on the road the other day, and it was a cool discovery. There are little things that artists have left, and I want to find out where it all came from.”

Those unexpected treasures are only a small part of the many reasons Christina calls her new role as Sloss Metal Arts (SMA) program director her “ultimate dream job.”
