WINTER GALLERY CRAWL
JANUARY 26 | CULTURAL DISTRICT
PITTSBURGH – The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is pleased to announce the complete programming lineup for the upcoming Gallery Crawl, taking place on January 26, 2018 from 5:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. in the Cultural District. A production of the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, the Gallery Crawl showcases Pittsburgh’s unique Cultural District by activating many of its venues with diverse artistic offerings. All Gallery Crawl events are free and open to the public.
The winter Gallery Crawl features 30 indoor Crawl Stops, spanning mediums from visual to culinary arts and live music to film screenings. January’s Gallery Crawl will feature the opening of three new media works in Wood Street Galleries by international artists Ryoichi Kurokawa and Novi_Sad. The Crawl will also provide one of the last opportunities to see the contemporary paintings of The Long Run at SPACE Gallery, as well as On Looking and White Noise at 707 and 709 Galleries, all three of which will close on January 28.
This quarter’s Crawl After Dark features a no cover DJ Party with DJ SMI in the Peirce Studio of the Trust Arts Education Center and an intimate ticketed performance by Chantae Cann in the café of the August Wilson Center for African American Culture. Cann’s debut album, “Journey to Golden,” was released in March 2016 at #1 on the iTunes Jazz Charts and #7 on the Jazz Billboard Charts. This performance is part of the August Wilson Center’s Wall of Sound Series, featuring emerging artists and fresh sounds. Other Crawl After Dark programming includes Salsa Fridays and CrawlSpace: Art + Comedy with Carnegie Museum of Art at Arcade Comedy Theater.
“The Gallery Crawl plays an important role in our annual programming because for one night local, national and international artists and works share the downtown spotlight. It’s a joy to work with our community partners in this unique and inclusive quarterly event,” shares Sarah Gilmer, Program Manager, Strategic Partnership and Community Engagement at the Trust.

Pittsburgh Cultural Trust
The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust has overseen one of Pittsburgh’s most historic transformations: turning a seedy red-light district into a magnet destination for arts lovers, residents, visitors, and business owners. Founded in 1984, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is a non-profit arts organization whose mission is the cultural and economic revitalization of a 14-block arts and entertainment/residential neighborhood called the Cultural District. The District is one of the country’s largest land masses “curated” by a single nonprofit arts organization. A major catalytic force in the city, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is a unique model of how public-private partnerships can reinvent a city with authenticity, innovation and creativity. Using the arts as an economic catalyst, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust has holistically created a world-renowned Cultural District that is revitalizing the city, improving the regional economy and enhancing Pittsburgh’s quality of life. Thanks to the support of foundations, corporations, government agencies and thousands of private citizens, the Cultural Trust stands as a national model of urban redevelopment through the arts.
