WHAT: Alloy Pittsburgh
WHERE: Carrie Blast Furnaces
WHEN: Through September 29
Why You Should Go:
Art is not just for the walls and pedestals of museums and galleries. The site where 1,250 tons of iron were once produced daily will soon house an innovative exhibition showcasing work by nine regional artists.
From modern dance and video projections, to cast glass and found objects, the site-specific installations are inspired by the history, current condition and potential future of the National Historic Landmark.
Accompanying events include curator-led guided tours, a conversation with past and current Alloy artists and a cocktail reception. Be sure to head back to Carrie Furnaces September 29 for Rivers of Steel’s Festival of Combustion.
