In the past ten years, many American cities have evolved; urban revitalization, gentrification or the redistribution of population have been at the forefront of redirecting the progress or decay of major urban centers. Artists view these shifts and changes in the metropolitan landscape and surrounding areas. Whether for educational, economic, site-specific, or access to intellectual or artistic communities, the goal for many artists is to gain access to a larger audience and make a livelihood with their art. In doing so, their world view is developed and notions into the general landscape of urban living is redefined. “Urbanic III: expanding the microcosm” gives a glimpse of what is coming to be - Urbanic.

...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.
