Wilkinsburg: Come Over, Come Eat, Come Play

Oct 13 2018 Come Over Come Eat Come Play event flyerOn Saturday October 13, 2018 we present a “Sacred Space Tour” of historic buildings with arts programming at each site. Activities are free and open to all ages.

“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.

Follow us on Facebook to see more photos of what we are doing together.

“Come Over, Come Eat, Come Play” by Jennifer Chenoweth in collaboration with the Wilkinsburg Community Development Corporation and the Wilkinsburg Community Art and Civic Design Commission with sponsorship by the Temporary Public Art and Placemaking Program of Neighborhood Allies and the Office of Public Art of Pittsburgh.

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!
