Rust Wire is proud to present The Big Urban Photography Project art show, featuring photographic interpretations of Rust Belt cities as seen through the eyes of their young residents. The show is the result of a multi-year collaborative media project that called on the region’s best documentary and fine arts photographers.
Over two years, we asked for open submissions of photography highlighting the unique blend of despair and hope in a number of cities. Dozens of amateur and professional photographers submitted images of Detroit, Youngstown, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, Chicago, Grand Rapids, Toledo, Cincinnati, Buffalo and others. The art show will allow us to share hold up the best work as a tribute to the region.
The Brew House, 2100 Mary Street in Pittsburgh’s South Side, will host the exhibit.
The show will open with a reception from 6-9 p.m. Friday, April 15. We would love to see you -our readers and contributors- there.
Let us know if you are coming here. We would love to meet as many of you as possible.
We also plan to bring the show to Cleveland and Youngstown soon!
A special thanks to Theo Keller at The Brew House, Tirzah DeCaria and Kara Skylling for helping plan and co-ordinate this show!
