The mission of the C.C. Stern Type Foundry is to cultivate a unique connection between industry and the arts in the Pacific Northwest. For the first phase of the museum's operation, the focus will be on relearning the skills and revitalizing the experiences of the working type foundry.
The museum will provide educational programming, including live
demonstrations of the foundry equipment and type casting processes.
It will also provide working displays and collected references, and
serve as an educational resource center for teachers and students of
history, printing, publishing, design, creative writing, book arts,
