As a part of the 58th Carnegie International, Pittsburgh-born and current Nafasi on Centre resident artist James "Yaya" Hough (b. 1974) will paint a mural in Pittsburgh's historic Hill District, the cultural and artistic hub where Hough was born.
Hough, in collaboration with the Carnegie Museum of Art and Nafasi, a community development initiative in the Hill District that utilizes art as a vehicle, has also been holding community workshops in the lead-up to the mural unveiling, which will take place later this year. This project expands on and continues upon Yaya's legacy of making art public to create common imaginaries.
We are so excited to share that this family-friendly event will be taking place. Guests can expect to enjoy and become a part of a 2-day Paint Party, which will include free food, music by Pittsburgh-based performer Shade Cobain, as well as fun painting activities, sidewalk chalk art, and more! This event will take place at 2145 Centre Ave. We look forward to seeing you all in attendance throughout the weekend.
