Who doesn’t love a good throwback? On Thursdays, go back in time and visit resources, activities, and works from previous CMOA exhibitions.
For today’s Throwback Thursday post, we’re returning to the colorful 2005 exhibition, kid size: The Material World of Childhood.
Revisit the opening of The Lozziwurm, a unique play sculpture featured in the museum’s front courtyard.
Travel back to 2002 with us as we explore some of the installation images from this exhibition, which presented a new way to think about and engage with artworks from our collection.
In 2017, we celebrated the fashion sense of our community with an event inspired by the otherworldly designs of Iris van Herpen, which we showcased in an exhibition that year. The event invited audiences to walk a runway, create miniature fashions with the Pittsburgh Center for Creative Reuse, and explore the exhibition, thinking through how designers use materials and textures to create new clothing.
A few staff members volunteered to share favorite works from past Carnegie International exhibitions for Throwback Thursday—check it out below!
Learn the fascinating history of how Kenneth Snelson’s sculpture, Forest Devil, was moved from a park in Downtown Pittsburgh to CMOA’s campus.
We’re spending some time today remembering the dreamlike portraits of Lynette Yiadom-Boakye featured in the 2018 Carnegie International.

Happy Throwback Thursday! Today, we’re revisiting a 2013 collaborative exhibition titled Oh Snap! The exhibition began with 13 works from our photography collection and grew to include photographs submitted by visitors.
Today, we’re celebrating Throwback Thursday with an exploration of our 2010 exhibition Imagining Home: Selections from the Heinz Architectural Center, which explored the ways that architects have helped shape our ideas of home.
