A Clear View of Penn Avenue


I've just penciled in Friday, February 5th to attend Unblurred: First Fridays on Penn. A monthly event sponsored by the Penn Avenue Arts Initiative, the studios and galleries on the strip of Penn between Friendship and Bloomfield are open in the evening to showcase art and the creative processes behind it.

Some highlights:

Dance Alloy Theatre is hosting a Celebration of the Next Generation, an open showcase of up-and-coming talent from the area schools. (Note: Dance Alloy has postponed the showcase due to the impending storm and will announce a new date once it has been scheduled.)

Pittsburgh Glass Center will be hosting a Behind The Lens look at their 10 year history.

The revitalization of this neighborhood is impressive and fast moving. There is so much excitement from those participating, and new galleries and eateries are opening faster than one can keep up!
