HEY EVERYONE! It’s September! This month in Pittsburgh we present Humanae/ I AM AUGUST on September 25th in conjunction with Kelly Strayhorn Theater. Humanae/ I AM AUGUST is a portrait-based installation featuring the faces of Pittsburghers and the rest world, in two parts:
Part 1: The Liberty Avenue side of the August Wilson Center will feature more than 200 portraits of Humanae/I AM AUGUST participants. The unveiling will take place as part of the Cultural Trust Gallery Crawl. This installation will continue until August 2016.
Part 2: An additional 88 portraits will be shown in the gallery at 937 Liberty Street. This up-close look at the work will allow everyone to be part of the celebration. This exhibition runs through October 2015.
We hope you come out! Give us a heads-up on our Facebook event page, and see a few sneak peeks in this space too: https://www.facebook.com/events/906418152765745/

So now it’s September, that means October is around the corner (though it’s hard to believe) and that means we’re launching the Flash Forward 2015 book on October 8th and the exhibition (October 1 – 13) both at Division Gallery in Toronto. Full details here and Facebook evite here.
There was an exceptional amount of talent this year, and we are proud to support these future art stars. Thanks as always to our presenting sponsor, TD Bank Group, for helping to make the inimitable Flash Forward happen. Here are a few previews of this gorgeous book.
