The Traveling Pittsburgh Craft-O-Tron Machine




The Traveling Pittsburgh Craft-O-Tron Machine

The goal of the machine project is to spread the word about the local craft scene by placing the machine in different locations throughout the city - museums, art centers, welcome centers, hip bars, health food stores and wherever the machine rests its gears. In order to accomplish our goal, we are looking for imaginative supporters who would be willing to house the machine for a short period of time- 2 weeks, a month. We hope that by creating a following with our project, the The Traveling Pittsburgh Craft-O-Tron Machine, will inspire Pittsburghers to not only support the local art scene, but to support their local shops and services ultimately encouraging the public to visit wherever the machine travels.

The Pittsburgh Art Blog

The Pittsburgh Art Blog features selected pittsburgh artists and upcoming exhibits with photos from the artists and galleries. since the major press outlets do not go beyond a directory listing of exhibits, blogs are needed to promote pittsburgh artists and their work. the blog also calls attention to the inferiority complex of pittsburgh art and how it's perpetuated by the major players in town. Started on August 20, 2007.pittsburgh area galleries and art venues are listed at the sister site www.PghGalleries.com.

the blog and website are volunteer projects from fine art photographer and pittsburgh artist advocate rick byerly, www.RickByerly.com.
