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.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
