100 years ago, Friends of Art, an organization dedicated to sharing art with the community, started purchasing art for the public school system in an effort to provide a creative palette for students and faculty to enjoy. And now, as the organization celebrates a century of creative revitalization, they welcomed guests to The Heinz History Center for a night of historic pieces that are indicative of Pittsburgh’s rich culture over the years.
A wide variety of works from artists such as Roy Hilton, Samuel Rosenberg, Malcolm Stephen Parcell, Syl Damianos, William Phafl, Adrienne Heinrich, Gregory Kavalec, and Robert Qualter are on display.
The exhibition will run through mid-June, giving schools the opportunity to bring students. The Gift of Art will also sell a printed catalog showcasing every piece of the current exhibit.
