Paths to the Park Exhibition

Reception: Friday, July 17, 2009, 6–9 p.m., in conjunction with the Cultural District Gallery Crawl

MCG@800 Penn Avenue—Internationally-renown performance and mixed media artist Julia Mandle visits Pittsburgh to conduct a 4-day workshop with MCG after-school students. While they produce their own pair of chalk shoes, students will learn about Mandle's artistic practice as well as issues surrounding art and activism! Then representatives from fellow North Side organizations will join the students in a silent performance that combines costume and path making to highlight community amenities.

Read the press release!

Pause with us on Friday, May 29 from 5-7 p.m. in Allegheny Commons (West Park) for a capstone performance and celebratory picnic.

In 1996, Julia Mandle founded J Mandle Performance—a Brooklyn-based not-for-profit arts organization that creates site-specific performances in unexpected locations to heighten the perception of the everyday environment. This collaboration between MCG and the New Hazlett Theater is partially funded by generous support from the Grable Foundation as part of the Charm Bracelet Project Fund.
