Alloy Pittsburgh 2018 opened to the public on Saturday August 25th, 2018.  In its third iteration, the project team partnered with four well-known Pittsburgh artist organizations to showcase the region’s breadth of talent and reach new audiences.  Partnerships were established with Associated Artists of Pittsburgh, Kipp Gallery at IUP, Pittsburgh Glass Center and Radiant Hall Studios.  Each organization sponsored an artist selected from their membership to join the Alloy Pittsburgh 2018 cohort.  The 2018 project boasted Alloy Pittsburgh’s most diverse range of disciplines including slump glass casting, modern dance, metal casting, digital video and sewn fabric among others.

My Alloy Pittsburgh experience at the Carrie Furnaces was like an industrial symphony composed by the African American Steelworker’s experience. Their contribution and sacrifice provided a unique rhythm, movement and sound. It was an honor to document their living legacy.
