Pittsburgh’s Black Art Scene: Past, Present, and Future
February 12, 2021 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 pm
In honor of Black History Month, the August Wilson African American Cultural Center is proud to present, Pittsburgh’s Black Art Scene: Past, Present & Future.
From theatre to jazz, Black art in Pittsburgh enjoys a history as rich and dynamic as the city itself. The birthplace of some of the country’s most acclaimed talent, Pittsburgh is home to a vibrant local art scene and an incubator of exciting new voices.
In celebration of Black History Month, we are thrilled to showcase the remarkable history of the National Negro Opera House, award-winning playwright, and director Mark Clayton Southers, and the young virtuosos of the funk-jazz collective, Funky Fly Project, representing the past, present and future of Pittsburgh’s dynamic art scene.
