Great article and I thank both, Jean Pierre and Lisa, for keeping alive our Mexican traditions overseas. I can't wait to see pictures of this year's "Ofrenda".
Thanks for sharing! Wish we could be there to experience it ourselves!
Thanks for this. My comic is called "Blast Furnace Funnies" tho'...
It was so nice to see that the Goth scene hadn't completely died after The Upstage closed. I had a great time at Hanging Garden! However, I feel that DJ Miss Amber's talent and support were overlooked in this article. She's a fun DJ and looks great doing her job. Kudos to LeeAnn and Julie for keeping the dark enchantment alive! ---A dancer at Sinferno/Hanging Garden
dan's dad: YOU RULE!
dan: YOU ALSO RULE!
cyberpunk apocalypse: LOVIN' YOU!
callouttoarms: someone is jealoussssssssssss :( womp womp.
this place is awesome, the people who live in it could not be friendlier, and i'm glad it exists! keep up the amazing work.
(psssssst. i love showering. plz don't tell my friends or they'll drop me like a smushy banana straight from the dumpster) NOT!
YOW! Callouttoarms, you must be one well-dressed hater. Strange as it may seem, it is the truth that Daniel McCloskey received a surprise inheritance of $10,000 from a distant relative. She was a retired telephone operator who lived with his Grandmother. Daniel actually may have met her when he was an infant, but otherwise the story that he did not know his benefactor is true. This was the seed money for the house.
Daniel had a full-tuition scholarship for his first year of college. He did borrow additional money from his father and has repaid a good portion of it. I am his very proud father. I was also one of the 66 donors to Cyberpunk Apocalypse's recent successful $2160 Kickstarter campaign, with a small donation of $100.
Most of the other donors were his friends in Pittsburgh and beyond. If Dan, or one of his friends, seemed rude to you, please shake it off and give them another chance. I wish you every success with your creative writing or other chosen career path.
Dont get my wrong, you dont have to be poor to be into and a part of punk rock. This just makes me laugh because why would you lie about where you got the money at so people would think you were more PUNK. I would love to have graduated from a university with ZERO debt and then have my dad buy me two house so i didnt have to pay rent.
as far as the comment about Dan wanting to be everyone to be friends, this couldnt be further from the truth. Most of the people living here are not very kind toward new people unless they are 'poor punks' that eat out of dumpsters and write. If you dress nice and buy brand names they wont even give you the time of day.
10,000 dollar anonymous donation? hahaha. i know that Daniel McKlosky's father paid for both of these houses as well as his college degree.
Even if someone did make a donation to him he would still have to come up with 30,000 to pay for the rest(the houses cost appox. 40,000) Sorry you dont get loans for $30,000 when you only work 2 days a week at a parking garage.
A amazing artist in our time!!!
Actually, there is no Qur'anic denouncement of depicting humans and animals. And in fact, worshippers have prayed in the presence of Birk's other shows.
These and many other details were discussed both at Birk's Warhol talk and at the Symposium.
The beginning of the end for Catholicism came when in 312 AD Constantine took up the sward to initiate conversion by murder. Think about it!! Negative use of Power has consequences.
Pittsburgh art reviews seem hard to come by when not having to do with the obvious mainstream venues and cliques so it's good to see a review of this exhibit.
It's too bad these reviews of ModernFormations have been few and far between (or nonexistent for the 2 main newspapers) because it won't be around much longer. It's not like critics have had 10 years to check the place out. Oh yeah, they have. The gallery was started in 2001.

I haven't seen the exhibit, but was wondering if it included the Steelerettes. Beginning in 1961 and ending in 1970, they were the first NFL cheerleaders and, according to Sports Illustrated in their tribute to the 75th anniversary of the Steelers, were the only significant thing that happened in the 1960's.

I find the review as shallow as the subject matter. "Floating, omniscient (?? - what gives the impression that these heads are omniscient?) heads chanting 'money' and 'murder'..." how terribly 1957. Shouldn't such tired cliches be called out by the author? And the artist's comment that the USA has no "left" is just as shallow. Just because "the left" in America doesn't use terrorist style kidnapping and be-headings doesn't mean they don't exist, it MAY just mean that they're more civilized and mature than the central-american versions. he seems to romanticize the narco-terrorist version of dissent, which is nothing more than brutality and terrorism, the wellspring of Peruvian/Columbian profiteering. Like his native country, Urzua needs to grow up a bit.
The neighborhood process had a significant impact on this design. The original L & K concept exaggerated the horizontal aspects of the building and the site, completely out of context with the vertical rectangles that mark the surrounding historic buidings. Community asked that the facade convey a greater verticality in keeping with the rhythm of the existing built environment. While most certainly a contemporary structure, the revised design does "harmonize subtly" with its surroundings. Community input helped take this from discordance to harmony.
This sounds like a really important show. Thanks for writing about it.
Absolutely love Tim's work. If you want to see some more of his work check out the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh. They have a few of his larger pieces in their collection.
it look like she is trap and she dosen't know what to do or she is upset about something in her life.
