Hit the streets with the Summer Gallery Crawl
The Summer Gallery Crawl is from 5:30 to 10 p.m. July 6 throughout the Cultural District in Pittsburgh. This quarterly event boasts a combination of visual art, multimedia artists, music, live theater and dance events that are free.
The crawl allows the community to participate in an immersive artistic experience throughout the 14-block cultural district. Each time, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust partners with local businesses, artists and nonprofits to create a dynamic collaboration.
The evening will include an eclectic variety of 25 locations that include activities for children, live music, exhibitions and performances. The art exhibit is “Identity Play” in SPACE gallery. Curated by Kristen Letts Kovak, it utilizes sculptures, paintings, projections, photographs, installations and poetry in the earnest search for self through the use of childhood strategies to explore and understand the complexities of adulthood.
The Katz Plaza will feature the musical genres of South America with performances by local Latin 10-piece band, Azucar, complete with a dance floor, and Global Beats by local world music specialist and DJ, Carla Leininger.
There will be a party in the alley of Garrison Way with folk band, Buffalo Rose, followed by a DJ under the new light exhibition, “Garrison Canal,” by Andrea Polli. DJs Big Phill, Blakk Steel and DJ Bamboo will close out the night with the Crawl After Dark Union Edition from 10 p.m. until midnight in the Trust Arts Education Center’s Pierce Studio.
