Insomniac artists and art aficionados in Pittsburgh: this weekend is for you. Art All Night, in Lawrenceville, runs from 8pm Saturday through to 2pm Sunday, and features “professional and amateur artists of all ages and abilities.” This includes you. Bring work to show/display/sell.
The Lawrenceville Art All Night inspired the Butler art collective, Associated Artists of Butler County, to run a similar event last year called ART24. It was a terrific success, and a lot of fun for everyone who participated. The fate of ART24 is in question right now, due to staff and other conflicts at the AABC, but most people seem to want for it to happen again. (The trick, of course, is finding enough people who are willing to help make it happen.)
