There are some new opportunities for artists and this year’s Three Rivers Arts Festival.
I am looking forward to touring the cultural landscape in Pittsburgh next month. From the cozy reading room at the Carnegie Library to the stages of the Cultural District, our purveyors of the arts are populating that landscape with local talent and national touring groups.
I live in a writers’ co-op called the Cyberpunk Apocalypse, so I do a lot of thinking about how we live in an information age similar to those described by William Gibson and other 80′s science fiction writers. Ian Page, it would seem, thinks about it a great deal more. Ian has created art across the world. He’s spent time in Europe, Latin America, the Arctic, and yes Pittsburgh.
