Art of Facts | Uncovering Pittsburgh Stories

The Pittsburgh Society of Illustrators is proud to present Art of Facts | Uncovering Pittsburgh Stories at the Senator John Heinz History Center.

This new exhibit opens July 22nd with a collection of work that creatively interprets our region’s unique history through illustration. Exhibiting artists have researched and rendered over 50 stories that go beyond famous landmarks and personalities to reveal the lesser-known narratives of Western Pennsylvania.

Who knew there used to be a roller coaster at the Point, or that Gulf Tower is one of the most productive nesting sites for peregrine falcons in Pennsylvania, or that Luna Park once had a live infant incubator exhibit? The list goes on. Art of Facts | Uncovering Pittsburgh Stories will encourage PSI members to dig deeper into our beloved region’s history to tell our audience more than they may already know.

PSI is the second largest illustration society in the United States, with an active, talented membership dedicated to the education and development of current and future practitioners. Art of Facts | Uncovering Pittsburgh Stories showcases the roots of Pittsburgh as well as promotes the profession of illustration in tandem with our society’s 20th anniversary.
