Carrie Furnace Project at Pump House & Water Tower on Oct 1!

There is a really cool looking exhibit opening tomorrow, October 1st, aptly titled the Carrie Furnace Project at a place I've certainly never heard of, or would ever think would host an art show, called the Pump House & Water Tower (880 E. Waterfront Dr, Homestead)! Not a far drive, or maybe walk for some of you, and this is sure to be a good time with free food and drinks with some great photos and large sculptors inspired by the space it is hosted in! What a cool idea for a show. We should create a show for every gallery in Pittsburgh, inspired in some way or another by the space in which it will be exhibited! Pittsburgh Grapevine says:
This project features the work of 4 artists who have gathered inspiration from the giant blast furnaces known as "Carrie." The work features images of the massive iron-producing blast furnace remains, steel sculpture, and illuminated sculpture incorporating graffiti from the furnace site.

The opening reception will be Thursday, October 1st 2009, from 6 pm to 9 pm at the historic Pump House & Water Tower Museum, which is part of the Rivers of Steel National Heritage Area.

Specialty wines are being poured by Dreadnought Wine distributors at the opening reception for your enjoyment.

The Square Cafe will provide delightful appetizers.
The rad photographers (and sculptor) in this show include:

Dee Briggs:

Jean McClung:

George Thomas Mendel:

Norm W. Schumm:
