A Pittsburgh Anthology celebrates stories of creative life in Pittsburgh as prompted by Carnegie Museum of Art’s collection across time and media. Since its inception in 1895, the museum has collected works made in, about, and for Pittsburgh. Each object in this exhibition sheds light on the many ways that artists, whether local or passing through, engage with the people, landscape, and built environment of the city. While some objects reveal the creative impulse to map or document Pittsburgh, others speak to its unique cultural character.
A Pittsburgh Anthology is organized by Eric Crosby, Henry J. Heinz II Acting Director and Richard Armstrong Senior Curator of Modern & Contemporary Art; Rachel Delphia, The Alan G. and Jane A. Lehman Curator of Decorative Arts & Design; and Hannah Turpin, Curatorial Assistant, Contemporary Art and Photography, Carnegie Museum of Art.
