The Salvation of Art: Pittsburgh by Pittsburgh Artist Art Book Fundraiser
The Art Book
With your help we want to publish another art book based on the Pittsburgh by Pittsburgh Artists V exhibition. This special exhibition features multi-media, including film, photography, printmaking, papermaking, cast, clay and cardboard sculpture, painting, performance art, fiber art, mixed media, found objects and Pittsburgh relics. This exhibition is a tribute to Pittsburgh master artists, featuring works by 15 Pittsburgh artists between the ages of 45 and 90. The importance of documenting older artists is significant for the history of local art! Your donation goes directly to the expenses of the art book project. Keep in mind we want to make it available for the public by the end of the year. Also keep a look out for an upcoming documentary series on IFCI Pittsburgh Masters!
