SU's art and earth sciences departments came together for the event that drains lava from a furnace into water.

The Syracuse University Lava Project poured into its fifth year Tuesday afternoon.

More than 500 pounds of lava were drained from the furnace into a tub of water. Art associate professor Robert Wysocki said the rocks used to make the lava are over one billion years old but once they are melted it's like they’re brand new.
