Dear Friends and Colleagues,

For the past 10 months, artists and six community based organizations have been collaborating to develop proposals for temporary public art projects that will be implemented beginning in June 2017. Please join Neighborhood Allies and the Office of Public Art for our artist-CBO showcase to learn more about their dynamic projects.

I invite you to join us for the Temporary Public Art and Placemaking: Project Showcase Open House

When: Thursday, June 8, 2017
Time: Doors open at 5:30 PM. Remarks and artist presentations are from 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM.
Where: Alloy 26, located in Nova Place, 100 South Commons, Pittsburgh, PA 15212
RSVP:  Please RSVP here; free and open to the public. Appetizers and beverages will be served.

The Temporary Public Art and Placemaking program is designed to bring together community organizations and artists to work in concert with local residents to develop a temporary work of public art. The artworks will be located in each of Neighborhood Allies’ target neighborhoods including the Hill District, Homewood, Larimer, Millvale, Wilkinsburg, and the Southern Hilltops. The teams are:

Hill House Association with artist Njaimeh Njie (Pittsburgh, PA)
Hilltop Men’s Group with artist James Simon (Pittsburgh, PA)
Legacy Arts Project (Homewood) with the East End Art Team (artists Daviea Davis, Jessica Rutherford, and Shernise Allen, Pittsburgh, PA)
Larimer Consensus Group with John Peña (Pittsburgh, PA)
Millvale Community Development Corporation, Society to Preserve the Maxo Vanka Murals, and Millvale Community Library with artist Ann Tarantino (State College, PA)
Wilkinsburg Community Development Corporation and Wilkinsburg Community Art and Civic Design Commission with artist Jennifer Chenoweth (Austin, TX)

The Temporary Public Art and Placemaking program is a program of Neighborhood Allies and the Office of Public Art. The program is generously funded by the Hillman Foundation and The Heinz Endowments.

Note: Nova Place is an easy walk from Downtown, just across the Roberto Clemente Bridge. Parking is available for $5 for attendees at Gate 5 on East Commons. Please tell the attendant that you are coming to the event at Alloy 26. Otherwise game day parking of $15 may apply.

Hope you can attend and support all of the community/artist teams!
