From the work of Andy Warhol to the design firm of Peter Muller-Munk, the Steel City has always been on the cutting edge of innovation and creativity. This December, you can explore the art of contemporary Pittsburgh producers in the Pittsburgh Glass Center’s Interiors with Impact.
Their latest exhibit is a partnership with Monmade, a program created by Craft Business Accelerator to support Pittsburgh craftsman. It aims to boost the local economy by building a network of technical and artistic professionals, providing ongoing mentorship and expanding opportunities within the city.
The two organizations have been collaborating now since 2016 (a natural fit considering the Pittsburgh Glass Centers excellent support of glass artists and community outreach to promote the craft) and such an exhibit is long overdue.
Interiors with Impact will feature staged interiors and will include the work of over twenty local artists. Walking throughout the show, you will be able to admire beautifully designed and lovingly crafted home decor, furniture, wall coverings, lighting and other objects.
For a fun Friday night out with friends and loved ones, stop by for the Opening Reception on December 8th. Celebrate Steel City ingenuity by enjoying some refreshments and treating yourself to a fantastic demonstration by expert glassblowers.
The Pittsburgh Glass Center and Monmade will also be hosting an event just for artists on January 31st. “Sell Out w/o Selling Out” will focus on the subject of integrity in creation and design, including practical advice on how to strengthen your vision and plans for production. Not only will there be a panel discussion from featured producers, but guests will also receive a tour of the exhibit.
Interiors with Impact will open on December 1st, 2017 through February 18th, 2018 at the Pittsburgh Glass Center and is free to the public.
