Alloy Pittsburgh is a unique visual and performing arts project co-founded by Pittsburgh artists Sean Derry and Chris McGinnis. The project was developed in collaboration with the Rivers of Steel National Heritage Area and the Kipp Gallery at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. Alloy Pittsburgh offers 15 artists from the greater Pittsburgh region the opportunity to develop temporary site-based artworks for the Carrie Furnace National Historic Landmark.

Artists engaged with their selected sites, and reflected on the historical, social and aesthetic attributes of the Carrie Furnaces.

Alloy artists give Ann Hamilton a tour of the facility and receive advice on working in former places of production.

In the evening, Concept Art Gallery hosted sculptor Tim Kaulen who spoke about his collaborative work at the Carrie Furnaces, and other industrial sites. Thanks to everyone who attended Tim's talk tonight at Concept Art Gallery.  It was a great conversation and a big thanks to everyone at Concept Art Galley for hosting the event.  A special thanks to Alison Brand Oehler and Dan McCusker for their hard work.  Thank you Tim Kaulen for such a fantastic discussion to end our public lecture series.  Please join all of the artists tomorrow evening from 6 -8pm at Unsmoke Systems in Braddock PA for the opening of "Prelude" which features previous work by Alloy Pittsburgh Artists.
