Exhibition Opening: Rethinking Pittsburgh’s Industrial Legacy
Did the industrial legacy end with deindustrialization? Rethinking Pittsburgh’s Industrial Legacy is a vibrant and critical new assessment of the region’s relationship with industry, telling an alternate history of industrialization that grapples with its material, social, and psychological effects, and calling attention to industry’s ongoing impact.
The artists in this exhibit, many with ties to Western Pennsylvania, explore the ways in which industry and deindustrialization inform our sense of place and our sense of possibility.
