The December Speakers Series will take place in the chapel of Neu Kirche, a church-turned-community arts center in Pittsburgh’s Northside. Saved from demolition by local community group and sold to artist and founder Lee Parker, Neu Kirche is a great example of creative and adaptive church reuse, that encourages authentic community engagement.
The Odd, Mysterious & Fascinating History of Preservation in Pittsburgh will take place on Tuesday, December 8, from 6:00 to 7:00 pm at Neu Kirche Contemporary Art Center, located at 1000 Madison Avenue in East Deutschtown.
