Declared a National Historic Landmark in 2006, Carrie, as it’s affectionately known, entices visitors to marvel at the scale and legacy of its industrial might.  A remnant of the legendary U.S. Steel Homestead Steel Works, the Carrie Blast Furnaces are a vestige of Pittsburgh’s 20th-century domination of the steel industry.

During this two-hour guided tour, you’ll hear stories about the site’s technology (including why it is nationally significant) as well as get to know the culture of its workers. You’ll also learn a bit about the iron-making process, from the movement of the raw materials to the tapping of the furnaces that produced fiery molten iron.

Virtual Glassblowing Demonstration + Gallery Tour: Friday, October 2 from 6-8pm

Artists include:
Najah Alboushi (Oakland, CA)
Sandra Bacchi (Pittsburgh, PA)
Ibraheem Basree (Columbus, OH)
May Cat (Portland, OR)
Tali Grinshpan (Walnut Creek, CA)

Contemporary Craft’s Grand Opening exhibition – The Heart Lives through The Hands – in its new, permanent facility in Upper Lawrenceville will feature internationally acclaimed artist Caledonia Curry’s (a.k.a. Swoon) large-scale paper and mixed media artworks. Swoon is the first woman to gain large-scale recognition in the male-dominated world of street art. Her cut paper and hand printed works marry the whimsical to the grounded, weaving in fairy tales, myth, and a recurring motif of the sacred feminine. Tendrils of her own family history—and a legacy of her parents’ struggles with addiction and substance abuse—recur throughout her work. Her exhibiting artwork addresses relationships between people and their built environment and explores how creativity can positively impact communities in times of crisis and change.

Join us to experience the immersive installation and tour Contemporary Craft’s fabulous new home starting on Thursday, September 3, 2020! This exhibition and its reception is free and welcomes all. Timed ticket will be required for entry.

[more+]

Dominic Chambers is a New Haven-based artist from St.Louis, MO. Chambers received his BFA from the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design and an MFA from the Yale University School of Art in 2019. Chambers creates large scale paintings and drawings that reference literary narratives cited in books, various mythologies, and African-American history. Specifically, working through color field paintings, his current work is invested in exploring moments of contemplation and meditation through reading and leisure. His work is founded upon the relationship between reality and fantasy. At this illusory boundary, Chambers negotiates ideas of magical realism by presenting Black figures as they delve into literature and contemplation within imagined landscapes. These subtle, leisurely moments not only celebrate each subject’s visionary power but further negate pervasive and toxic clichés, instead focusing on Black talent, creativity and mysticism. Chambers has exhibited his work in exhibitions in the United States and Europe. He has participated in a number of residencies, including The Yale Norfolk summer residency and the New York Studio residency Program in Brooklyn, NY.

Episode 4: The Bolts of Fortune - “Sourdough: Rise Up” (Resonance Works | Pittsburgh) - “Corsair” (Chicago Fringe Opera) - “The Happy Hour” (Finale)

The Decameron Opera Coalition aims to keep opera alive, new work blossoming, singers singing, and audiences rapt, even in these alarming times, through a new collaboration of unprecedented scope. We are nine independent opera companies from across the United States: Resonance Works [Pittsburgh], Lyric Opera of the North [Duluth], UrbanArias [Washington DC], Bare Opera [NYC], Opera in the Heights [Houston], Chicago Fringe Opera, Milwaukee Opera Theatre, Fargo-Moorhead Opera, and An Opera Theatre [Minneapolis], along with composer and librettist Peter Hilliard and Matt Boresi (The Last American Hammer). For our maiden project we’ve commissioned nine teams of contemporary opera’s most vital and most diverse creative voices to showcase America’s indispensable indie opera scene, and dedicate ourselves to new sounds, unparalleled storytelling, and underrepresented voices.  Independent opera companies are where new audiences are born, where discerning opera appetites are fed, where new work is incubated, and where talent is nurtured.  The Decameron Opera Coalition is the future of opera.

Join us for a virtual lecture from beloved CBS Sunday Morning correspondent and humorist Mo Rocca, on his entertaining and rigorously researched Mobituaries that celebrates the dead people who have long fascinated him.

Mo Rocca has always loved obituaries—reading about the remarkable lives of global leaders, Hollywood heavyweights, and innovators who changed the world. But not every notable life has gotten the send-off it deserves. His quest to right that wrong inspired Mobituaries, his #1 hit podcast. Now with Mobituaries, the book, he has gone much further, with all new essays on artists, entertainers, sports stars, political pioneers, founding fathers, and more. Even if you know the names, you’ve never understood why they matter… until now. Plus, there are Mobits for dead sports teams, dead countries, the dearly departed station wagon, and dragons. Yes, dragons.

Rocca is an expert researcher and storyteller. With his dogged reporting and trademark wit, Rocca brings these men and women back to life like no one else can. Mobituaries is an insightful and unconventional account of the people who made life worth living for the rest of us, one that asks us to think about who gets remembered, and why.

Declared a National Historic Landmark in 2006, Carrie, as it’s affectionately known, entices visitors to marvel at the scale and legacy of its industrial might.  A remnant of the legendary U.S. Steel Homestead Steel Works, the Carrie Blast Furnaces are a vestige of Pittsburgh’s 20th-century domination of the steel industry.

During this two-hour guided tour, you’ll hear stories about the site’s technology (including why it is nationally significant) as well as get to know the culture of its workers. You’ll also learn a bit about the iron-making process, from the movement of the raw materials to the tapping of the furnaces that produced fiery molten iron.

Virtual Glassblowing Demonstration + Gallery Tour: Friday, October 2 from 6-8pm

Artists include:
Najah Alboushi (Oakland, CA)
Sandra Bacchi (Pittsburgh, PA)
Ibraheem Basree (Columbus, OH)
May Cat (Portland, OR)
Tali Grinshpan (Walnut Creek, CA)
Alan Iwamura (Toledo, OH)

Contemporary Craft’s Grand Opening exhibition – The Heart Lives through The Hands – in its new, permanent facility in Upper Lawrenceville will feature internationally acclaimed artist Caledonia Curry’s (a.k.a. Swoon) large-scale paper and mixed media artworks. Swoon is the first woman to gain large-scale recognition in the male-dominated world of street art. Her cut paper and hand printed works marry the whimsical to the grounded, weaving in fairy tales, myth, and a recurring motif of the sacred feminine. Tendrils of her own family history—and a legacy of her parents’ struggles with addiction and substance abuse—recur throughout her work. Her exhibiting artwork addresses relationships between people and their built environment and explores how creativity can positively impact communities in times of crisis and change.

Join us to experience the immersive installation and tour Contemporary Craft’s fabulous new home starting on Thursday, September 3, 2020! This exhibition and its reception is free and welcomes all. Timed ticket will be required for entry.

Dominic Chambers is a New Haven-based artist from St.Louis, MO. Chambers received his BFA from the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design and an MFA from the Yale University School of Art in 2019. Chambers creates large scale paintings and drawings that reference literary narratives cited in books, various mythologies, and African-American history. Specifically, working through color field paintings, his current work is invested in exploring moments of contemplation and meditation through reading and leisure. His work is founded upon the relationship between reality and fantasy. At this illusory boundary, Chambers negotiates ideas of magical realism by presenting Black figures as they delve into literature and contemplation within imagined landscapes. These subtle, leisurely moments not only celebrate each subject’s visionary power but further negate pervasive and toxic clichés, instead focusing on Black talent, creativity and mysticism. Chambers has exhibited his work in exhibitions in the United States and Europe. He has participated in a number of residencies, including The Yale Norfolk summer residency and the New York Studio residency Program in Brooklyn, NY.

Episode 4: The Bolts of Fortune - “Sourdough: Rise Up” (Resonance Works | Pittsburgh) - “Corsair” (Chicago Fringe Opera) - “The Happy Hour” (Finale)

The Decameron Opera Coalition aims to keep opera alive, new work blossoming, singers singing, and audiences rapt, even in these alarming times, through a new collaboration of unprecedented scope. We are nine independent opera companies from across the United States: Resonance Works [Pittsburgh], Lyric Opera of the North [Duluth], UrbanArias [Washington DC], Bare Opera [NYC], Opera in the Heights [Houston], Chicago Fringe Opera, Milwaukee Opera Theatre, Fargo-Moorhead Opera, and An Opera Theatre [Minneapolis], along with composer and librettist Peter Hilliard and Matt Boresi (The Last American Hammer). For our maiden project we’ve commissioned nine teams of contemporary opera’s most vital and most diverse creative voices to showcase America’s indispensable indie opera scene, and dedicate ourselves to new sounds, unparalleled storytelling, and underrepresented voices.  Independent opera companies are where new audiences are born, where discerning opera appetites are fed, where new work is incubated, and where talent is nurtured.  The Decameron Opera Coalition is the future of opera.

Join us for a virtual lecture from beloved CBS Sunday Morning correspondent and humorist Mo Rocca, on his entertaining and rigorously researched Mobituaries that celebrates the dead people who have long fascinated him.

Mo Rocca has always loved obituaries—reading about the remarkable lives of global leaders, Hollywood heavyweights, and innovators who changed the world. But not every notable life has gotten the send-off it deserves. His quest to right that wrong inspired Mobituaries, his #1 hit podcast. Now with Mobituaries, the book, he has gone much further, with all new essays on artists, entertainers, sports stars, political pioneers, founding fathers, and more. Even if you know the names, you’ve never understood why they matter… until now. Plus, there are Mobits for dead sports teams, dead countries, the dearly departed station wagon, and dragons. Yes, dragons.

Rocca is an expert researcher and storyteller. With his dogged reporting and trademark wit, Rocca brings these men and women back to life like no one else can. Mobituaries is an insightful and unconventional account of the people who made life worth living for the rest of us, one that asks us to think about who gets remembered, and why.
