Whitney Avenue Art Gallery
Whitney Avenue Art Gallery (WAAG) was a public art intervention which transformed ten blighted properties in Wilkinsburg, PA during the summer of 2010. Two series of community art making workshops were led by local artists, culminating in a street celebration. I conceived of, and served as Project Manager for WAAG.
Please visit the WAAG project website for additional photos and information.
