Post-Rustbelt: Living Between America seeks to capture the artistic experience of life in “Middle America” during the decades following the decline of industry (mid 1970’s) to the turn of the Millennium.
We are seeking artwork representative of, but not limited to: industry decline, the disappearance of main street (and subsequent rise of hyper consumerism), general life (artistic, social, work, family, otherwise) caught between changes (i.e. holding onto a past way of life while searching for new identity), and/or juxtaposition of old and new.
Although regional in the nature of the content, the show is open to national artists who may have migrated away from the rustbelt, as this exodus is also an important aspect of the the Post-Rustbelt experience.
Post-Rustbelt is Part One of a two-part series of shows taking place in April/May 2021 at Vestige Concept Gallery, a new venture in the heart of Pittsburgh’s most vibrant arts and entertainment neighborhood: Lawrenceville. Each of the shows will also appear in an online gallery format.
Post-Rustbelt: Living Between America in-person opening reception will be held Saturday, April 3rd, at 6 PM.
