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. The events will 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.
Pittsburgh’s Black Art Scene: Past, Present & Future will be presented in the three Friday night events listed below. For more information, visit the Pittsburgh’s Black Art Scene: Past, Present & Future event page.
