Pittsburgh Cultural Trust to host Summer Gallery Crawl

Arcade Comedy Theater, at 943 Liberty Ave., will host family-friendly improv comedy shows every half-hour during the July 12 Summer Gallery Crawl in the Cultural District.

Experience Pittsburgh’s Cultural District during the Summer Gallery Crawl from 5:30 to 10 p.m. on July 12.

Sponsored by the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, the evening features stops at indoor and outdoor locations and public art places.

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.

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.
