Experience life through the lens of Pittsburghers with the Heinz History Center's upcoming exhibition, #Pixburgh: A Photographic Experience. From the first “selfie” in 1839 to the nearly two billion images taken daily today, photography connects generations and remains one of the most popular means of self-expression. Step back in time through the lens of historic Pittsburghers in this new exhibition featuring the History Center’s extensive collection of photography. Witness an array of styles, subjects, and time periods, from police mugshots to the 1960 World Series, from early daguerreotypes to Polaroids, and experience Pittsburgh’s cycles of change and renewal. From the darkroom to the digital era, #Pixburgh will provide a compelling glimpse into how Pittsburghers chronicle life in a format that’s more popular than ever.
