Western Pennsylvania’s rich history could never be written without acknowledging the region’s tremendous heritage in manufacturing and industry. Our region’s growth and development was forged in the factories…and continues to this day.
For this reason, I’m particularly excited that Schneider Downs is a sponsor of an exciting new exhibition at The Andy Warhol Museum. Factory Direct: Pittsburgh is a celebration of the manufacturing legacy in our region.
Factory Direct: Pittsburgh will showcase the artwork of 14 established contemporary artists from around the world, each invited to conduct artist residencies in Pittsburgh-based factories. Each artist will create a new work of art based on their selected factory’s history, technologies, materials and/or processes.
As a native of this region, I’m very familiar with the manufacturing industry’s legacy, and I’m proud to be a leader of Schneider Downs’ Manufacturing Industry Group. Our firm’s involvement in this exhibition demonstrates our support and appreciation for the contributions manufacturing makes to our region every day. We are thrilled to be a part of this special project.
The Factory Direct: Pittsburgh exhibition is scheduled from June 24 – September 9, and will be located at Guardian Self-Storage, 2839 Liberty Avenue in the Strip District. The exhibition is open to the public Tuesdays through Sundays, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Complete information on Factory Direct: Pittsburgh can be found at The Andy Warhol Museum’s Web site.
In the coming months, we’ll continue to post commentary about Factory Direct: Pittsburgh and the many ideas it may inspire. I hope you’ll make time to visit the exhibition this summer, and I’d love to hear your thoughts about the art.
