Progressive, interdisciplinary education with a focus on the arts.
Pittsburgh Spring 2006 Exhibition | Happenings | Text | Players
The Pittsburgh based Appalachian School is an extended network of international artists working together to redefine the experimental lexicon of art.
In March of 2006 The Appalachian School debuts ‘The Spring Event’ in Pittsburgh, a site-specific exhibition at the Three Rivers Arts Festival Gallery. The project reflects an inclusive and inventive collaborative program, activating multiple 'high and low' art sites throughout the region, online, and internationally. Film screenings, live performances, interdisciplinary collaborations, and installation art hallmark the Spring Event.
International artists convene in Pittsburgh to showcase modern developments in art, moving image and design. This year artists representing Holland, The United Kingdom, and Germany join American artists living and working in the Appalachian Region.
The Appalachian School utilizes the Pittsburgh based Three Rivers Arts Festival as an exhibition site in accordance to the festival's mission:
Showcasing Pittsburgh's unique cooperative and collaborative community within Appalachia, a series of interdisciplinary happenings will occur throughout the region from March through June. Forging new forms in contemporary practice, these interdisciplinary collaborations remain site-specific to their venues and unique to the artists participating.
