This program is a project of The People Are The Light, a series of public art installations and workshops in Pittsburgh's Homewood neighborhood, curated by Alisha Wormsley. Twelve artist-collaborators lead events and performances throughout the neighborhood. Each project explores the connections between past, present and future.
The People Are The Light is part of LIGHTIME, a year of programming from CMOA's Hillman Photography Initiative. Photography, at its basis, measures light and time. Wormsley, whose work revolves around memory and time, activates these fundamentals of photography, creating space for artists, collaborators, and participants to share their stories.
