Carnegie Int’l, 57th ed., 2018


Carnegie Int’l, 57th ed., 2018 is already happening! To follow the programs, publications, research, and other goings-on that will culminate in an exhibition at the Carnegie Museum of Art from October 2018 to April 2019, visit the 57th Carnegie International exhibition website(external link).

Founded in 1896, the Carnegie International continues to bring current art from around the world to the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh.

Tam O’Shanter Drawing Sessions

These creative sessions are for those who draw and for those who don’t. Explore contemporary art through improvised forms of drawing with artists and organizers of the 2018 Carnegie International. Sketching, doodling, cartooning, mapping, writing, and marking are among the many modes that will draw us together.

Named after the original art classes for young people that Carnegie Museum of Art has been holding since 1929; the tam o’shanter, or tam, is a Scottish beret—oft adorned by a pompom. Read more about the Tam O’Shanter Drawing Sessions(external link).
