August Wilson Cultural Center searching for artists’ input for upcoming exhibition

The August Wilson Cultural Center is looking for teen and emerging artists to share their perspectives on the issues being address in the exhibition “Race and Revolution: Still Separate—Still Unequal.”

The art exhibition “Race and Revolution: Still Separate — Still Unequal” will be on display at the August Wilson Cultural Center in Downtown Pittsburgh from April 27 to July 21.

The exhibit examines racial and economic disparities in the U.S. public school system.

Curated by Katie Fuller and Larry Ossei-Mensah, the exhibit originally launched in 2017 in Brooklyn and has traveled to five other venues, most recently at Penn State University.

There will be a series of events, programs and workshops associated with the exhibit. An open call is being organized to include the works of teen and emerging artists from the Pittsburgh area to share their perspectives on the issues being explored in the show.

Artists in grades 9-12 can submit an application here. Deadline is March 15. For those over the age of 18, they can submit their application here. Deadline is March 8.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
