The Frick Collects: From Rubens to Monet

May 1 - May 14

Free admission

MUSEUM HOURS
Tues-Sun 10 am-5 pm
Fri 10 am-9 pm
Closed Mondays

Take a look at the collections at the Frick in a new way in this exhibition, which celebrates the works of fine and decorative art at the heart of the Frick experience. From bachelor purchases by Henry Clay Frick through his daughter Helen’s love of early Italian Renaissance art and 18th-century French painting, this exhibition of many of our most significant objects tells the story of the Frick today — who we are and how we have evolved from these founding collectors.

Regular visitors to the Frick are familiar with our spectacular Rubens portrait and likely know the dazzling Monet that typically hangs in the sitting room at Clayton. The Frick Collects features these iconic works and other extraordinary paintings and decorative arts from the collection, as well as more recent acquisitions, like Meissonier’s 1806, Jena. By bringing these works together in our exhibition galleries, we are putting the spotlight on our own collection, and taking the opportunity to tell more of our own stories—both about individual objects and about the Frick as a whole.

This exhibition is planned to coincide with the publication of The Frick Pittsburgh: A Guide to the Collection . The companion publication is made possible by a generous grant from The Richard C. von Hess Foundation.”

Firelei Baez: Bloodlines

May 1 - May 21

Free with museum admission

Tracing the history of social movements in the United States and the Caribbean, Firelei Báez: Bloodlines presents a new body of work by Firelei Báez. Báez, born in Santiago de los Caballeros, Dominican Republic, is inspired by lineages of black resistance and works primarily with large-scale drawings on paper, making connections that further our understanding of dispersed groups.

Bloodlines showcases paintings and drawings depicting textiles, hair designs, and body ornaments, linking symbols of power with human gestures. The work is labor intensive, delicate, rich in color, and presents female subjects as strongly connected to both a past and present understanding of race. In several paintings women are featured in elaborate tignons, an 18th century headdress imposed by law for women of color in New Orleans and a tradition that although imposed as a form of oppression became, through elaborate patterning and design, a symbol of power and beauty. Azabache, gemstones carved into fists and worn in Latin American cultures as protection from evil spirits, and panthers, a symbol claimed by the Black Panthers, the African American revolutionary party founded in the 1960s, also adorn the work. The exhibition also includes a number of new works shown for the first time.

Firelei Báez: Bloodlines is organized by Pérez Art Museum Miami Assistant Curator María Elena Ortiz. The Pittsburgh presentation is coordinated by Jessica Beck, The Warhol’s associate curator of art. Firelei Báez: Bloodlines and its presentation at the Pérez Art Museum Miami was made possible by BNY Mellon with additional support from Chloé.

“Mayors of Pittsburgh” Tour at Allegheny Cemetery

May 1 - December 31, 2020

“To commemorate the City of Pittsburgh’s Bicentennial Celebration, the Allegheny Cemetery Historical Association now offers self-guided tours for guests to visit the final resting place of twenty-eight Pittsburgh Mayors in historic Allegheny Cemetery!

Notable stops include Ebenezer Denny in Section 11, the City’s first Mayor, compatriot of George Washington and famed hero of the Revolutionary War. In Section 29 we find Joseph Barker, who served from 1850-1851 and was elected into office while incarcerated (one of at least eight times he was imprisoned). Section 20 boasts Mayor George W. Guthrie who served from 1906-1909 before his appointment as the United States Ambassador to Japan by President Woodrow Wilson. We find Charles Kline in Section 40, whose service was marked by scandal, a corruption conviction and the now infamous “oriental rug.” William McNair’s headstone in Section 33 simply reads, “Husband,” though public record will remember him best for his antics in office when he named his Chauffeur the City’s Director of Public Safety and gladly stood on his head for press photos. At every stop, visitors will find a plaque with an image of the Mayor (when available) and details on the years they lived, terms served, political affiliation and accomplishments while in office.

No reservations are needed and self-guided tours are free to the public. Maps, brochures and literature detailing the Cemetery’s history and additional famous “residents” are available at the Administration Office which is staffed from 8:15am Monday – Friday until 5:00pm and Saturday until 4:00pm.

Allegheny Cemetery is a registered [501 (c)(13)] non-denominational, non-profit organization established in 1844 by the City of Pittsburgh’s most prominent citizens and philanthropists. Over 170 years later, her landscape remains as celebrated as her residents and the public is invited to visit seven days per week until 7:00pm in summer months. Fifteen miles of winding country roads offer visitors a chance to escape urban gridlock and “get lost” in a Romantic Era rural garden filled with one-of-a-kind memorial statuary and spectacular historic architecture. The Allegheny Cemetery Historical Association provides tours, educational literature and public programming as part of its mission to preserve the historic integrity of Allegheny Cemetery and celebrate the rich heritage of the greater Pittsburgh region. Guided group tours are available as well as information on burial, cremation and memorial products and services by calling 412-682-1624.”

Ice Station Zebra

May 1 - May 28

Ice Station Zebra, lead by American artist Emily Newman, is an anti-Cold War project designed to entertain, inform, and engage children and adults on opposite sides of a historical intrigue to play together. Using the language of old Hollywood, the aim of the project is to open an alternative channel for dialogue, in contrast to the current global media, which on both sides is reviving Cold War-era tensions and bringing out feelings of mistrust and paranoia in the civilian population. Peace, Friendship, Bubblegum! The project addresses the special relevance of the Kirkenes/Nikel NATO border as a high-tension point in ongoing US/Russia relations, and also draws attention to the Arctic as a location for imagined and real dramatic scenarios–the cold heart of the Cold War. Emily Newman has been working on this project since 2014 and this exhibition will be one of the many milestones of its journey. Her process has been captured here on her Facebook page. The F.I.N.E. Art Residency is supported by the Fine Foundation.

Communal Resurrection: The Soul of a Community, images by Steve Prince

May 1 - June 18

Opening Reception: April 21 5:30-10:00p.m.
Communal Resurrection chronicles the progression of Black music from the fields to hip-hop. The series reveals how the music became a balm for people whose names, culture, and Gods were under siege through the stultifying system of American capitalism. Each image is laden with symbolism to craft a narrative of resistance, survival, and creativity in the face of hegemony. Communal Resurrection is America’s story of how the community made a way out of no way and transformed the world with a sound that could not be silenced!

Artist Steve A. Prince is a native of New Orleans, Louisiana, and he currently resides in Meadville, Pennsylvania, where he is an assistant professor of art and artist in residence at Allegheny College. He received his BFA from Xavier University of Louisiana and his MFA in printmaking and sculpture from Michigan State University. He is represented by Eyekons Gallery in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and ZuCot Gallery in Atlanta, Georgia, and is the owner of One Fish Studio LLC.

WPTS Radio presents Oddisee & Good Compny – Beneath The Surface Tour with special guest Olivier St. Louis

May 25 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

Oddisee is an everyman with extraordinary talent. Both a rapper chronicling the perils and joys of ordinary existence, and a virtuosic producer attuned to the vibrations of how life actually sounds. But don’t mistake the Odd Tape for the noise of birds chirping, idle chatter, or car alarms; it’s that internal soul-jazz reverberating at the back of your brain. For the last decade, the Mello Music Group artist has alternated between instrumental albums, full-length rap records, and his role as one-third of Diamond District. The Odd Tape is technically the former—there are no vocals—but if you call this an instrumental album, you might as well say the same about Bitches Brew.
