“Come Over, Come Eat, Come Play” is a community art project that includes pop up events around the Borough of Wilkinsburg in 2017 and 2018: food events, domino games, dance parties, workshops and park programs. The events are to build connections within the community and to engage residents about what is beautiful in Wilkinsburg: diversity, historical architecture, and a small community rebuilding trust.
The artist is documenting the historical architecture in Wilkinsburg through drawings, photos, and tours.
In 2016, The Office of Public Art of the Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council announced a call for artists to be artists in residence within a community. A series of six temporary works of public art are being created in each of Neighborhood Allies’ target neighborhoods: the Hill District, Homewood, Larimer, Millvale, Wilkinsburg, and the Southern Hilltops (Allentown-Beltzhoover-Knoxville).
This program is supported by generous funding from the Hillman Foundation and The Heinz Endowments. THANK YOU!
