Visual Voices: Truth Narratives

Mondays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through Aug. 18
412-261-7003

With the opening reception tonight, Contemporary Craft’s exhibition, Visual Voices: Truth Narratives begins its five-month showcase. The exhibit uses ceramic work that seeks to tell the artists’ personal stories of racism, sexism and classism, by using visual imagery and narratives. The 37 nationally and internationally recognized artists include Syd Carpenter, a Pittsburgh native whose work has been featured in the Smithsonian American Art Museum. The work featured is inspired both by the human experience of the artists, and the media they’re influenced by, creating a sense of a global community, interconnected by universal stories. - Lauren Ortego Free

We Are Nature: Living in the Anthropocene

Mondays, Wednesdays-Sundays. Continues through June 30
412-622-3131

Discover more about humanity's complex relationship with the environment and add your voice to the conversation in We Are Nature—the first exhibition in North America to focus on the Anthropocene. The Anthropocene is the current geological era in which humans are making a profound impact on the geological strata. While the term itself is still being debated by geologists, the museum is embracing it as a social and cultural tool for exploring the broad sum effect humans are having on the planet. Explore the Anthropocene for yourself as an era and a concept. Wander through a “human diorama” to contemplate the impact that our everyday lives have on a complicated and fragile ecosystem.
