The People Are the Light

When: Sept. 16-Oct. 15 2017

Join artist Alisha B. Wormsley for a series of public art installations and workshops in Pittsburgh’s Homewood neighborhood. Centered on healing and cleansing, these events invite you to reflect on Homewood’s past and present and share your vision for its future. Twelve artist-collaborators, curated by Wormsley, lead events and performances throughout neighborhood spaces and in two public art installations. Each project explores the connections between past, present and future. Robert Hodge’s The Beauty Box serves as a snapshot from Homewood’s past, reimagining an open-air fruit stand as it may have been decades ago. Through a series of workshops, ten women artists celebrate and invite reflection on Homewood’s present. Ricardo Robinson’s Morrow’s Hush creates an outdoor sound installation, encouraging deep listening and consideration of Homewood’s future soundscape. Wormsley will document the installations and events, producing a series of photographs and a film premiering at Carnegie Museum of Art this December. Opening activites Sept. 16, 2-4 p.m.
