A visual and performing arts initiative developed for the Carrie Furnace National Historic Landmark. The program is a laboratory where 15 emerging artists from the Pittsburgh region will create site-based projects that investigate the creative reuse of a post-industrial site. The completed artworks will be simultaneously presented in a one of a kind art event to be held at the Carrie Furnaces National Historic Landmark in the fall of 2013. The project will promote the work of emerging and underrepresented artists from the Pittsburgh region and encourage interaction between the artists and the surrounding communities of Braddock, Homestead, Swissvale and Rankin. In addition to interactive public tours and the event reception, the project will engage the local community through public discussions and lectures throughout the summer and fall of 2013.
