"Won't You Be My Neighbor?" Day is Tomorrow!

Each year on March 20th, thousands of people around the world celebrate the birthday of Mr. Rogers by wearing a sweater and sharing neighborly good deeds. This year is no different! To celebrate the legacy of Pittsburgh's most notable neighbor, we're offering FREE admission all day and hands-on art-making activities in the lobby from 11:00AM - 4:00PM.

The activity we've planned for tomorrow is called Pixel Pages. It's a great, fun project that explores the colors and concepts of Jacob and Jessica Ciocci’s installation, The Dark Side of Light. Using simple materials like graph paper, transparencies, highlighter markers, and tape, participants make layered and colorful compositions from images in the piece and from geometric forms. The activity simulates the stitching together of pixels to create digital images in a distinctly non-digital way. Visitors will also be able to contribute to a collaborative wall mural made of colored paper “pixels” and images.

I hope to see you tomorrow! And don't forget to wear a sweater, we'll all be wearing ours!
