Eyes of Pittsburgh

Heinz History Center
December 5
5:30 — 8:30 p.m.

Throughout history, photojournalists around the globe have worked to chronicle some of life’s most defining moments — from poignant stories about everyday people and places, to monumental events.

What’s life like on the other side of the lens?

With “The Eyes of Pittsburgh,” a new exhibition coming to the Heinz History Center, the public will get a glimpse at iconic images documenting 100 years of local history and will hear firsthand from prolific photographers.

Running December 5 through June 30, 2018, the exhibit will showcase compelling images from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s archives, which endures as a visual history of the city and its people.

On December 5, don’t miss the opening reception and panel discussion. Join experts in the fields of photojournalism and documentary photography for an engaging discussion, as they share “life behind the lens, reveal moments behind some of the world’s most recognizable images and discuss the role technology plays in how we document life and preserve history today.”

Panelists include NYC-based photojournalist David Burnett, Post-Gazette photographer Stephanie Strasburg, Pittsburgh-based photographer Lynn Johnson, and Teenie Harris Archive specialist Charlene Foggie-Barnette.

Free and open to the public, the event will also feature a cash bar, silent disco, access to all galleries and free parking.
