Hemispheric Conversations Urban Art Project: Celebrating Histories Of Industrial Labor And Potential Futures Of Ecological Abundance

In Spring 2019, we had a number of activities including a public lecture by School of the Art Institute professor Nicole Marroquin, a book launch, and five Youth Street Art Workshops (You.SAW). For this post, however, I want to discuss the artist residencies that we offered and how our guest artists negotiated and responded to the history of Pittsburgh’s industrial and ecological environs.
