Pittsburgh IS Art!
Welcome to Pittsburgh, with premier performances, contemporary wonders and provocative works, it's the place for art lovers everywhere. The Andy Warhol Museum, Carnegie Museum of Art, Mattress Factory, Pittsburgh Glass Center and The Frick Art & Historical Center are just a handful of places to discover art from many different eras.
Carnegie Museum of Art presents the 2013 Carnegie International, through March 16, 2014. This major exhibition of new international art brings together 35 artists from 19 countries. There's also a playground, large-scale commissions throughout the museum. The International includes an ambitious reinstallation of the permanent collection of contemporary art that helped build the museum. See more.
Now at The Andy Warhol Museum is Yasumasa Morimura: Theater of the Self, through Jan. 14, 2014. Morimura is renowned for his photographic reprisals of iconic images from art history and popular culture in which he replaces the subjects with his own self-image.
The Mattress Factory, Pittsburgh's Museum of Contemporary Art, presents a site-specific installation by Chiharu Shiota, through July 31, 2014. The artist will fill the eight rooms in the museum's new building at 516 Sampsonia Way with webs of black yarn to evoke a sense of nostalgia, simultaneously attracting viewers while confronting them with painful memories and difficult emotions.
The Pittsburgh Glass Center offers glass art classes for beginners, experts and everyone in between. Take a quick Make-it-Now experience or an 8-week class. Create marbles, pumpkins, tiles and more.
The first retrospective of Burton Morris' work, Poptastic! The Art of Burton Morris, takes place at the Heinz History Center, through Feb. 23, 2014. The exhibition features 50 works of art and chronicles Morris' career and his impact on the Pop Art movement.
In recognition of the sesquicentennial of the Battle of Gettysburg, the Frick Art & Historical Center presents Civil War Era Drawings from the Becker Collection, through Jan. 12, 2014. The exhibition includes more than 100 drawings by artists working for Frank Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper during the Civil War years.
