Art All Night is entering its 14th year, and they will again be housed at the Iron City Brewery. This is a fun event for all ages, with hands on activities, performances by local bands and many kinds of art.
Due to popular demand, this year’s event will begin earlier to allow for additional children’s activities. Children’s activities from 4 to 8 pm on Saturday will include a community quilt, a dance party with puppets from the Puppets for Pittsburgh lending library, recordings for the HEAR ME project, button making, and much more. In addition to the expanded children’s activities, Art All Night will feature a wide variety of live performances, video, DJ performances, opportunities to create art on-site, and a unique blend of visual art on display for the community over the course of this nearly 24-hour event.
If you’re an artist, Art All Night wants you! The organizers have made it easy for visual artists to participate, with online registration. If you wish to perform, emails for more information were being accepted starting in February. It may be too late for this year, but contact bands(at)artallnight.org. and the band captain will contact you with more details. From the Art All Night site —
