WATCH THE CREATIVE PROCESS
As part of the Art Out of the Box project, Polish Hill, Central North Side, Lawrenceville, Friendship and the South Side will host a temporary installation on their landscape. For one week, artists will set up in an "art box", and the public will be able to observe their creative process first hand. The resulting works will be presented as part of the Gallery Crawl, which is held bi-annually in Downtown Pittsburgh's Cultural District. The project was conceived by Samantha McDonough, a supporter of community-based art initiatives, and has the support of many local organizations including the The Sprout Fund, Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council, Friendship Development Associates, South Side Local Development Company, Polish Hill Civic Association, Central Northside Neighborhood Council and The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust.
Local councilman Bill Peduto, has put a call out to artists who would like to participate in the project on his website. Please visit for more information!
EAT, DRINK AND BE FUNNY
ToonSeum Pittsburgh and The Church Brew Works have teamed up to bring you a Valentine's Day Event like no other. In my opinion, Romance and Humor have always gone hand in hand, so The Valentine Couples Drawing Workshop and Beer Tasting is tops on my list of things to do on the big V-Day weekend. Hosted by ToonSeum's Joe Wos, the event, held on Friday, February 11th, is $50 per couple ($45 for members of the ToonSeum), and begins at 6:30pm. Visit the Eventbrite site to register, or ToonSeum's website for more information. Act fast, as space is limited and it is sure to be a popular event!
