ASSEMBLE TO KICK OFF MONTH OF ECO FUN @ GA/GI
HYPER LOCAL ART SHOW : ASSEMBLE PITTSBURGH from assemblepgh on Vimeo.
On April 5th, join Pittsburgh Center for Creative Reuse(PCCR) and artist Erika Johnson for the opening night of BIO: a reuse ecosystem at Assemble, 5125 Penn Avenue. Everyone is invited to participate in crafting this installation of reclaimed, rescued, and repurposed materials exploring the interconnections among people, creatures, objects, and communities. Assemble and PCCR will cohost free, fun reuse activities all month. Proceeds from art sales benefit PCCR and Assemble.
And the fun continues all month long with the following events: Opening Party -- April 5 (during Penn Arts Unblurred): select and connect materials to co-create the BIO environment. Biodiversity Learning Party -- April 10, 4:30-7:30pm: art and science unite for an all-ages learning experience. Crafternoon -- April 20, 1-4pm: free creative reuse workshop for kids! Drop in anytime. Make & Talk -- April 24 from 7-9pm: join Erika for a grown-up conversation about art, science, and reuse, then make-and-take your own biomorphic creation using PCCR's abundant selection of repurposed materials. But it all starts GA/GI night at Unblurred on Penn...so be there!
