Re: “Get lost in the Carnegie International, 57th Edition

What a waste of money. The exhibit was lazy, the curator went over budget on personal vacations, and the artists were un-inspired and poorly chosen. I want my money back for mistakenly paying to see the exhibit. The Carnegie Museum of Art is a pretentious eyesore with abusive staff and should be shut down.

Re: “Miller Institute for Contemporary Art explores bounds of tech and humanity with Paradox: The Body in the Age of AI

Please, nice try renaming the gallery- what a scam. No leader for three years, no institutional support, and no connection to the student culture, this place should have been converted into computer labs long ago.

Re: “Arts groups mobilize to save federal funding

Identity Politics breaks art. Politics breaks art. Funding people that you think are special rather than quality art of consequence breaks art. Funding art that promotes politics breaks art. There has been no significant movement in the arts since the 1960s because government is involved. It ignores great artists, promotes no talent whiners. When art becomes craft-less, esoteric and tasteless crap no one wants its. It is art with no affection.

Re: “Three artists of note at Pittsburgh’s Feminist Zine Fest

Just a note that Cindy Crabb is the editor of Learning Good Consent. Fair Moans is sharing the zine as part of their excellent work.

Re: “Faith Wilding: Fearful Symmetries at the Miller Gallery

Thank you Bill ODriscoll and City Paper for your mention of subRosa and our proud connection to CMU, Pittsburgh, and Faith Wilding. However, I would like to clarify that the group had many additional founding members, some of whom continue to work as artists in Pittsburgh and elsewhere. Steffi Domike, Ann Rosenthal, Lucia Sommer, Christina Hung, and Laleh Mehran were long time core members. Suzie Silver and Carolina Loyola-Garcia were also part of our early doings, to name a few. In any case, I am thrilled that Wildings earlier work has come to the Miller Gallery.
-Hyla Willis, subRosa

Re: “ScareHouse and Bricolage team up on a new escape room

Enter the Imaginarium was like walking into a piece of artwork and trying to find your way out.....but wishing you could stay. I went in alone, curious and thinking I wasn't all that smart -- met nine strangers who teamed up, put our heads together and worked our way through this glorious maze -- each member of our assemblage (including two children) contributed insight and teamwork to help solve our way back out. I feel victorious and I wanna go back. Thank you Daedalus, for giving me my wings! <3

Re: “A new public artwork lights up the North Side

It punctures my eyeballs when I sit on my stoop. Love MF, but sheesh, I wish that exhibit didn't blind neighbors trying to move around the neighborhood at night

Re: “Artist residency highlights Latino artists from around the world

It's true that Latinos are not recognized in Pittsburgh, unless you are all being mistaken as Mexican. There is nothing wrong with celebrating the Mexican culture but there are many other latino cultures to be celebrated also. People here seem to find it so easy to group us all in the same bowl, not realizing the depth of the Latino cultures. Many are learning but there is a long way to go. Pittsburgh needs to open their minds to the fact that, just as their parents celebrated their culture, so do Latinos with great pride.

Re: “Industrial Arts Co-op's "The Workers" disappoints as public sculpture.

Just saw this for the first time this past weekend. Loved it!
Very cool piece of art and fitting remembrance to Pgh. of the amazing steel industry era.
Made me reflect on what it would have been like to be the guy shoveling. Not really a job I'd like to have! Thx to those who sweat it out!

Re: “Artist residency highlights Latino artists from around the world

yes, PIttsburgh diversity when it comes to Latinos and a lot of ethnics groups of color is small for as big as Pittsburgh is ,GO FIGURE!? After being sent here from the gulfcoast, i couldn't believe that is was like this, but i think this is why so many people here can be a little bit sterile or not use to people of color in volumes unless there black, and that doesn't steam to well here either. Pittsburgh is like the last frontier for a lot of things and that includes race too.
