Pittsburgh Cultural Trust to host Summer Gallery Crawl
Experience Pittsburgh’s Cultural District during the Summer Gallery Crawl from 5:30 to 10 p.m. on July 12.
There is also a “Crawl After Dark” event which begins at 9 p.m. and features salsa dancing at the Greer Cabaret Theater and “Footwork After Dark,” at nearby Pierce Studio.
Since 2004, the quarterly gallery crawls have brought nearly 30,000 annual visitors to Pittsburgh’s Cultural District, according to the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust.
Highlights include Wood Street Galleries, which is hosting “Mythologies,” works by Guillaume Marmin showcasing images and sounds.
The 937 Gallery will have “What We Don’t Talk About.” The work focuses on that fact that everyone will die, although most people don’t want to talk about that subject. The 707 Penn Gallery offers “Darkest Dark,” charcoal drawings by Oreen Cohen.
At SPACE, an exhibit curated by Brett Yasko displays 1,921 photographs that have never been seen before — even by the photographers who took them. Yasko asked 87 Pittsburgh artists to each shoot a roll of 35mm film and return it back to him, undeveloped.
Enjoy reggae from The Flow Band at Agnes R. Katz Plaza and peruse used books with a focus on art at the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh’s table. Arcade Comedy Theater will host improv comedy shows.
Food trucks will be parked on Tito Way selling a variety of options from desserts to snacks, and light supper fare.
