Four times a year, dozens of galleries and cultural institutions in Downtown Pittsburgh open their doors to art lovers for a free Gallery Crawl in the Cultural District. According to organizer Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, the quarterly event brings nearly 30,000 annual visitors. On Fri., Sept. 27, as temperatures reached a high of 81 degrees, photographer Joie Knouse was there to capture the scene as the streets and museums filled up with folks checking out the artwork. Here are some of her highlights.
