Great work by local artists and artisans, at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts Shop. Perfect for giving.
Now available: the new DVD Pittsburgh Reframed [at 250]. Made by Pittsburgh Filmmakers / Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, to honor the city's 250th anniversary, with support from the Allegheny Regional Asset District.
This collection of new shorts by local film and video artists sprang from a promotional film, simply called Pittsburgh, which was commissioned in 1958 for the city's bicentennial. It's believed there were several versions of Pittsburgh, in an attempt to please a large committee with conflicting views. But the final version (28 minutes) pleased no one, and the project was shelved. The original footage, which was recently inspected, cleaned and copied to high-definition video, is included on the disc.
Each short film in Pittsburgh Reframed [at 250] is two minutes and fifty seconds long, and includes sections of the original footage, reconfigured. Local artists participating include: Mike Bonello, Tony Buba, Olivia Ciummo, Brian Cohen, Matthew R. Day, Tess Allard, Carolina Loyola Garcia, Anna Hawkins, Ben Hernstrom, Charlie Humphrey, Thad Kellstadt, Brady Lewis, Michael Mallis, Jesse McLean, Bob Rutkowski, Elizabeth Seamans, Minette Seate, Chris Smalley, Josh Tonies and Lucian Wintrich.
Thru Dec 24, our hours are extended:Tue & Wed – 10am to 5pm ... Thurs – 10am to 9pm ... Fri & Sat – 10am to 7pm ... Sundays – noon to 5pm.
