“Mayors of Pittsburgh” Tour at Allegheny Cemetery

June 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.”

June 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.

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.

Carolyn Reed Barritt: Black & Blue

June 1 – June 30

From May 30th through June 30th, BoxHeart Gallery presents Carolyn Reed Barritt: Black & Blue on exhibit in our main gallery. Through line, shape and structure, the artwork presented in Carolyn Reed Barritt: Black & Blue investigates character and place, creating narratives and identities that often affect each other. With art that fluctuates between painting, drawing, and sculpture, Barritt combines disparate, yet individually familiar elements to form new, off-balance realities. Her abstracted depictions and landscapes are created with marks made from ink, markers, and paint. Her sculptural works incorporate a diverse spectrum of materials, both natural and man-made, including sticks, wood, metal, and glass. Generally she works in series, creating artworks that explore particular ideas and concepts mined from a wide range of topics. Protectors, guardians and looming threats - January 2017 seemed to explode into being. It bombarded everyone and everything with chaos, and revealed an apparently universal contempt. On all sides feelings of being battered followed, and Barritt found herself wanting to escape a world that had started to feel hostile. Her desire to flee manifested in depictions of looming threats, but it also found refuge in improbable, far away lands. This need for safety morphed into drawings of unlikely protectors and guardians. Black and blue are the colors of darkness, of bruises, and of sadness, but they are also the colors of strength and open sky. Barritt’s series, Black and Blue, expresses her current feelings of uncertainty and apprehension, but they also embody her belief in our collective ability to persevere, and eventually find balance. Organized by Nicole Capozzi and Joshua Hogan, owners of BoxHeart Gallery, the artwork presented in Carolyn Reed Barritt: Black & Blue examines the tension between forced order with the chaotic and unpredictable nature of our world as it evolves through a process of transformation and dissolution. Born in Carlton Minnesota, Barritt received her BA from Macalester College in St. Paul Minnesota in 1985. Her work has been exhibited nationally, including at Site:Brooklyn (New York), Dab Art (Ventura, California) and the Alexandria Museum, (Alexandria, Louisiana). In 2014 she was selected as one of the first Visual Artists in Residence at the University of Michigan Musical Society. She currently lives and works in Ann Arbor Michigan. Reception with the Artist Carolyn Reed Barritt: Black & Blue will be on exhibit from May 30th through June 30th in BoxHeart’s main gallery. The exhibition coincides with our 2nd floor exhibit, Theodore Bolha: Before We Were Born. The reception with the artists will be held Saturday, June 3rd from 5 to 8 pm. It is free and open to the public.

Theodore Bolha: Before We Were Born

June 1 – June 30

From May 30th through June 30th, BoxHeart Gallery presents Theodore Bolha: Before We Were Born on exhibit in our 2nd floor gallery. The artwork presented in Theodore Bolha: Before We Were Born exemplifies Bolha’s profound ability as a self taught modern paper cutting artist. Pittsburgh's The Gallery Four, explains "with boundless patience, Theodore sculpts immaculate silhouettes of vining plant roots, lively animals, and sinuous nerve endings using only his hand and a razor. Delicate, complicated patterns and repeating fractals dance from his blade, and with the addition of a light source, disperse these labyrinthine figures in luminous splendor. As these remarkable pieces are hand-cut and one of a kind, chance and skill play a dynamic role in the finished piece - mistakes aren't part of the process; but rather adaptation, natural selection". Almost any textured surface stimulates Bolha’s creative process. Referred to as automatism, Bolha works by allowing his subconscious to express itself however it will. Bolha does not plan out his designs in advance he instead allows them to, "grow with the flow". Starting with a very basic intention, such as a single dot or wavy branching lines, each layer of paper proceeds in unpredictable ways. While working Bolha thinks about where paper came from, its structure and fragility, its use and the future of paper in our society, how dependent on paper civilization had to be in order for us to get to where we are today. The resulting imagery, present in Bolha’s subconscious and manifested into his artwork, feels like a place beyond our reality. Bolha calls this place The Everside; the place we came from before we were born. Bolha (b. 1980) is from Latrobe Pennsylvania. After graduating from The Art Institute of Pittsburgh with a BA in Graphic Design, Bolha worked as a freelance designer and a full time designer for a local safety company. In 2008, Bolha decided it was time for a dramatic change - a change that would eventually lead him to discover his talent for paper cutting and it's efficacy as his new medium. While visiting a friend in Miami, Bolha happened to discover the artwork of Jen Stark. Her work made a huge impression on Bolha; paper's potential for self expression. Most recently, his artwork has been exhibited at Gallery Four, Latrobe Art Center, and Allegory Gallery. Reception with the Artist Theodore Bolha: Before We Were Born will be on exhibit from May 30th through June 30th in BoxHeart’s 2nd floor gallery. The exhibition coincides with our main floor floor exhibit, Carolyn Reed Barritt: Black & Blue. The reception with the artists will be held Saturday, June 3rd from 5 to 8 pm. It is free and open to the public. BoxHeart Gallery Visitor Information Admission: Free and open to the public. The 1st floor (main gallery) of BoxHeart Gallery may be accessed using a ramp. The 2nd floor (gallery space) is not accessible by wheelchair. Gallery Hours: Sunday 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Wednesday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. BoxHeart Gallery is closed on Mondays. For general information, call 412.687.8858.

Mahler’s Resurrection

June 2 – June 4

“Why have you lived? Why have you suffered? Is it all some huge, awful joke? We have to answer these questions somehow if we are to go on living – indeed, even if we are only to go on dying!” Mahler raises these questions in the first movement of his Symphony No. 2 “Resurrection,” questions that are later answered in the finale. Manfred Honeck leads the orchestra, along with the Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh and outstanding soloists Christina Landshamer and Gerhild Romberger, in a performance of this monumental symphony.

Wine & Garden Tour

June 2

Allegheny West was once the millionaires row of Pittsburgh and still contains remarkable examples of the architecture of the Gilded Age. Join us this June for a relaxed walking tour of grand homes and amazing gardens. At each stop, a selection of Spanish wine and tapas will be served. This year’s tour features two unusual Romanesque revival buildings by Henry Hobson Richardson. The first, the “Brick Oven Church” is an utterly unique country style church which includes an altar that was a gift from the Thaw family. The other is the original Thaw mansion – where Harry Thaw grew up before the incident with Stanford White and Evelyn Nesbitt. Another house on this years tour is a stone fronted home designed by Longfellow, Alden & Harlow. It was built as a gift from B F Jones (J&L Steel) to his daughter and new son in law (one of the Horne family of department store fame). The house was later the scene of a mysterious murder or suicide and is reputed to be haunted. A link to the neighborhood history site is here: http://alleghenywest.org/about/neighborhood-history/

Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto (A Weekend in St. Petersburg)

June 9 – June 11

Get the final stamp in your passport when chief conductor of the Royal Liverpool and Oslo Philharmonic, Vasily Petrenko debuts in a program to honor the city of St. Petersburg. Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 8 was written at a turning point in the war, and although a great sense of achievement and pride spread across the nation, Shostakovich was not so optimistic, fearing that this would give further rise to Stalin. As a result, the symphony ended with a less-than-hopeful tone, leaving it unpopular and useless for propaganda purposes in his home country. This same weekend, enjoy another debut with rising star Behzod Abduraimov in a performance of Tchaikovsky’s much-loved Piano Concerto No. 1. The concerto had its Russian premiere in St. Petersburg in November 1875 and has one of the most iconic openings of any classical work.

A Gathering of Sons – World Premiere Jazz

June 15 – July 7

Claim your humanity. Another Black man is shot by a White police officer, and we ask what comes next? How do we heal? How do we protect our children? How do we survive this state, this country, this world? A Gathering of Sons takes us on a journey through the lives of a young Black man, a White police officer, parents of a newborn child, and a collection of spirits who watch over the world. A confrontation with history and the way it breathes through the present, this poetic premiere is a conversation on our biases and how we heal after tragedy. It is an eye towards freedom and the work our communities need to do to reach it. Full of magic, fear, hope, pain, and, still, an even more powerful love. 28th World Premiere of Pittsburgh Festival Opera and the second new work in PFO’s “Music that Matters” series of commissioned works.

Just Films: From This Day Forward

June 15 @ 6:30 p.m.

Just Films is a collaboration of four organizations in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania committed to women, girls, gender equity, and social justice: the Chatham University Women’s Institute, New Voices Pittsburgh, the Women and Girls Foundation, and the Women’s Law Project. We have chosen ten documentaries for this film series covering a wide range of issues – from immigration to human trafficking, trans families, paid leave, and more – designed to educate, inspire, challenge, and move you to action. Many of these films were made by women, and most will be showing in Pittsburgh for the first time. From This Day Forward is a moving portrayal of an American family coping with one of the most intimate of transformations. When director Sharon Shattuck’s father came out as transgender and changed her name to Trisha, Sharon was in the awkward throes of middle school. Her father’s transition to female was difficult for her straight-identified mother, Marcia, to accept, but her parents stayed together. As the Shattucks reunite to plan Sharon’s wedding, she seeks a deeper understanding of how her parents’ marriage survived the radical changes that threatened to tear them apart.

Andy Warhol: Stars of the Silver Screen

June 16 – September 24

Andy Warhol: Stars of the Silver Screen explores Andy Warhol’s fascination with Hollywood, fame, and stardom. Warhol’s desire to look at the stars was ignited while attending his neighborhood cinemas with his brothers in gritty, industrial 1930s Pittsburgh. He reveled in the glamorous actors, elegant costumes, and sophisticated settings of the movies from Hollywood’s golden years. As a child, Warhol sent away for fan photos and devoured movie magazines, surrounding himself with celebrity images. This practice continued into adulthood, and he eventually accumulated a profusion of photographs, movie posters, and other memorabilia. Warhol’s lifelong infatuation with fame is traced from his earliest movie star scrapbook he started when he was a young boy to a Frank Sinatra biography that was on his bedside table when he died in 1987. This exhibition considers celebrity through hundreds of archival items from The Warhol’s vast collection of Warhol’s personal items and related artworks, including paintings, prints, drawings, photographs, publications, film excerpts, television episodes, and video diaries. Part of Warhol’s Pop style had its genesis in images of the stars, and this exhibition examines some of the inspiration behind the work that kick-started the current age of global celebrity culture. The exhibition is curated by The Warhol’s Curator of Film and Video Geralyn Huxley and Chief Archivist Matt Wrbican.

Joey DeFrancesco & Catherine Russell

July 7 @ 7:30 p.m.

Joey DeFrancesco's emergence in the 1980s marked the onset of a musical renaissance. Organ jazz had all but gone into hibernation from the mid-'70s to the mid-'80s until DeFrancesco reignited the flame with his vintage Hammond organ and Leslie speaker cabinet. The son of "Papa" John DeFrancesco, an organist himself, the younger DeFrancesco remembers playing as early as four-years-old. Soon after, his father began bringing him to gigs in Philadelphia, sitting in with legendary players like Hank Mobley and Philly Joe Jones, who quickly recognized his talent and enthusiasm. A two-time Grammy winner, Catherine Russell is a one of a kind musician and vocalist. A graduate of American Academy of Dramatic Arts, Catherine has toured the world, performing and recording with David Bowie, Steely Dan, Cyndi Lauper, Jackson Browne, Michael Feinstein, Levon Helm, Paul Simon, Rosanne Cash, Carrie Smith, Toshi Reagon, Wynton Marsalis, Dr. John, Joan Osborne, Vince Giordano, and many others, appearing on over 200 albums.

Mr. Burns, a post-electric play

August 3 – August 19

A “pop culture comedy” in post-apocalyptic America After the collapse of civilization, a group of survivors share a campfire and begin to piece together the plot of "The Simpsons" episode "Cape Feare" entirely from memory. 7 years later, this and other snippets of pop culture (sitcom plots, commercials, jingles, and pop songs) have become the live entertainment of a post-apocalyptic society, sincerely trying to hold onto its past. 75 years later, these are the myths and legends from which new forms of performance are created. Mr. Burns, a post-electric play turns an eye to the communal creation of myth by exploring a post-apocalyptic landscape where yesterday's pop culture (an episode of "The Simpsons" pieced together entirely from memory) is rehashed as a myth of perseverance.

2017 Red Bull Flugtag

August 5

Red Bull Flugtag challenges the brave and brainy to design, build and pilot home-made flying machines off a 22-foot high flight deck in hopes of soaring into the wild blue yonder... or more often, plunging into the waters below. Flugtag, which means "flying day" in German, pushes the envelope of human-powered flight, but competitors need more than airtime to reach the podium. Teams are judged on three criteria: flight distance, creativity of the craft, and showmanship. This criteria has inspired flying tacos, prehistoric pterodactyls, winnebagos with wings and even Snoopy and the gang to grace the Flugtag flight decks! Since the first Red Bull Flugtag took place in Vienna, Austria, in 1992, more than 100 Red Bull Flugtags have been held around the globe, attracting up to 300,000 spectators for a single event.

Million Dollar Quartet

August 8 – August 13

A TWIST OF FATE BROUGHT THE WORLD ONE OF THE GREATEST JAM SESSIONS EVER!

MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET is the smash-hit, Tony Award-winning musical inspired by the unexpected recording session that brought together rock 'n' roll icons Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins. On December 4, 1956, this unlikely quartet converged on Sun Records in Memphis. They didn’t always get along, but when it came to the music, they created something special. Thankfully, Sun’s owner, Sam Phillips, flipped the recording switch and rock ‘n’ roll history was made. MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET takes you behind the music with a monumental night that explodes off the stage with 21 legendary hits that defined rock 'n' roll, including: “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Walk the Line,” “Great Balls of Fire,” “Folsom Prison Blues,” “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On” and “Hound Dog.”

Now The Outlaws return with new music, new focus and an uncompromising new mission: It’s about a band of brothers bound together by history, harmony and the road. While The Steppin Stones began as a cover band, the trio has spent the past three years exploring their own distinct sound, writing their own music, and touring as much as possible. The sound they’ve accomplished is nostalgic rock, informed by all those years playing classic songs.

His studio credits include musicians and groups like Steely Dan, Joni Mitchell, Michael Jackson, Sammy Davis Jr., Herb Alpert, Quincy Jones, Bobby Bland, Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt and literally dozens of others. He went on to perform with the Crusaders and then with the multi platinum jazz super group Fourplay. With 30 albums to his credit and having performed on over 100 albums that have gone Gold or Platinum, Larry Carlton has set a standard for artistry that spans three decades. Saxophonist Don Aliquo has been described as a player “with an articulate flow of always surprising ideas, sophisticated with a dexterous technique and an incredibly smooth tenor sound that seduces rather than shouts.” Although his early influences are saxophonists John Coltrane, Stanley Turrentine and Dexter Gordon, his recent recorded output also displays the influences of Lester Young, Stan Getz and Joe Henderson as well.

From Slavery to Freedom Film Series: The Language You Cry In

August 16 @ 5:30 p.m.

Join us at the Carnegie Library for a screening of the film “The Language You Cry In.” The film tells a scholarly detective story that finds meaningful links between African Americans and their ancestral past. It details the remarkable struggle of African Americans to retain links to their African past through the horrors of the middle massage during the Atlantic slave trade. In addition, the film showcases the contributions of scholarship made by Vertamae Grosvenor, Lorenzo Dow Turner, and Joseph Opala. In the 1980s, Opala, an American anthropologist in Sierra Leone studying the 18th century British slave castle of Bunce Island, discovered that it sent many captives to Georgia and South Carolina, where Southern elites paid a pretty penny for experienced slaves from Africa’s “Rice Coast.” The film will be moderated by Dr. Edda L. Fields-Black, an Africanist and author at Carnegie Mellon University. The program will be held at the Homewood Library Auditorium, located at 7101 Hamilton Ave., Pittsburgh, PA 15208.

Kaki King: Multiple Choice Audio/Visual

August 25 @ 8 p.m.

Your Night, You Decide.

Select one, select them all. You own the night with Multiple Choice Events:

[A] Attend a show

[B] Go to a dance party

[C] Grab a bite to eat at our food truck roundup, or

ALL OF THE ABOVE

Multiple Choice: Audio/Visual Edition features composer and guitarist Kaki King, hailed by Rolling Stone as “a genre unto herself.” Over the past 13 years the Brooklyn-based artist has released 8 extraordinarily diverse and distinctive albums, performed with such icons as Foo Fighters, Timbaland, and The Mountain Goats, contributed to a variety of film and TV soundtracks including Golden Globe-nominated work on Sean Penn’s "Into The Wild," and played to an increasingly fervent following of music lovers on innumerable world tours.

Provocative and moving, surprising and beautiful, “The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body” is Kaki King at her visionary best: deconstructing and redefining the role of solo instrumental artist though virtuoso technique, insatiable imagination, and boundless humanity. King's groundbreaking new multi-media performance uses projection mapping to present the guitar as an ontological tabula rasa in a creation myth unlike any other.

Or, join us at 9:00 p.m. for a dance party, more information to be announced.

Food truck entry is free, and will be available throughout the evening.

All ages are welcome for this event.

2017 Father’s Day 5K

June 18  - June 30

Join us for our fourth annual FATHER'S DAY 5K virtual race! It's time to celebrate your World's Best Dad! We will also be donating at least 15% of each registration to Team Hoyt, which works to build the individual character, confidence and self-esteem of America’s disabled and physically challenged young people through inclusion in all facets of daily life.

In the spring of 1977, Rick Hoyt told his father, Dick Hoyt, that he wanted to participate in a 5-mile benefit run for a lacrosse player who had been paralyzed in an accident. Far from being a long-distance runner, Dick agreed to push Rick in his wheelchair and they finished all 5 miles, coming in next to last. That night, Rick told his father, “Dad, when I’m running, it feels like I’m not handicapped.”

When: Complete your race any time in June. Father's Day is June 18, 2017!

Where: You choose the course and you time yourself (you’ll report your finishing time to us).

Why: Because we want as many people as we can get to virtually run (or walk) a 5K in honor of all of the DAD's out there. We will be donating a portion of each registration fee (at least 15% of each registration) to Team Hoyt.
