Inspired by his memories of his hometown of Pittsburgh, this new collection of paintings, digital prints, and videos explore the historic racial tension and segregation during the 1980’s and 90’s. The work includes impressions of the unique topography of the city, celebrating some of its unique beauty and character. The exhibit also features archival 1950’s photographs of various communities in Pittsburgh. The work hopes to serve as a way to tell personal stories as it relates to the urban conditions of the city and to explore how it has changed and evolved over the years.

The 70-piece ensemble returns to ASU West for an exciting performance featuring First Time Winners & One Hit Wonders by Franck, Chabrier, and Dukas. Why were these artists not able to hit the bull’s-eye more than once? On the other hand, Debussy’s Prelude ushered in the new sounds of what was to be called “impressionist music.” It was encored at the first performance and served as a departure point for his brilliant career.
