I had a blast taking photos again at the Andy Warhol Museum's annual Youth Invasion, a take-over of the museum's gallery space by local teens. The night, themed Stay Woke, featured a galley exhibition, art-making, a long line-up of shows by local groups, and all-around reveling. The future looks bright from here!
I documented Katherine Behar's fascinating exhibition and installation, Anonymous Autonomous, at the Robert Morris University Media Arts Gallery this winter. Katherine's Autonomous office chairs freely move about the gallery, following the 'road markings' placed by gallery visitors. She also featured her organic 'keyboard' sculptures.
Head to downtown Pittsburgh and check out, Mingle Mangle, a fantastic group show at Casey Droege Cultural Productions, featuring the work of Darnell Chambers, Lenka Clayton, Larry Cressman, Caldwell Linker, Jovencio de la Paz, and Rachel Schmidhofer.
Casey and her team put on some great art events and exhibitions here in Pittsburgh, and I'm so grateful to work with them!
On a snowy Martin Luther King Day, I ventured down to Braddock, PA and joined the Braddock Inclusion Project and about 200 fellow citizens to kick-off the campaign of Summer Lee, a 30-year old, African-American attorney hoping to represent the 34th Legislative District in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. The 34th covers some of Pittsburgh, and many of it's southeastern suburbs, including Swissvale, Braddock, Rankin, Homestead, East Pittsburgh, Turtle Creek and others. Endorsed by the Pittsburgh Chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), Ms. Lee, her 'Ancestor's Wildest Dream', is running on a platform of inclusion and social justice and seeks to unseat a nearly 20 year incumbent from the Costa political dynasty.
