New CMU Regina Miller Gallery Curator Astria Suparak

The Pittsburgh Galleries blog is a volunteer effort from Rick Byerly to promote Pittsburgh art events which feature artists from the area. The website effort is an up-to-date directory with Pittsburgh area art venues. Thanks go to David L. Edwards Art and Ruth E. Hendricks for their donations to this effort! Donation and sponsor info can be found here. Rick Byerly, Uniquetake Photography

Thanks to Merge Divide's post over at Digging Pitt I caught the news about CMU's new Regina Miller Gallery Curator, Astria Suparak, at the Pittsburgh City Paper. Welcome to Astria.

Big box buildings have increasingly dominated the American landscape since the 1960s. Author, artist, and researcher Julia Christensen spent the last six years studying these monolithic, free-standing structures and their resulting effects on our culture. Organized by the Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon University, Your Town, Inc. features photographs and new installation work examining how communities are changing in the shadow of corporate real estate
