"Your Town, Inc." Exhibition
Calendar: Local Calendar
Quercus  
10 Sep 2008
80 photographs from Julia Christensen’s forthcoming book “Big Box Reuse” will be shown in an exhibition that examines how communities are changing in the shadow of corporate real estate. Also featured is the architectural construction “UnBox,” a reaction to the megastore big-box concept. Transportable, modular, and easily reusable, the UnBox will be used for creative and social uses, challenging the values and conventions of corporate retail.
The exhibition is open Tuesday-Sunday, 11:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m. August 29-November 22. Admission is free.
Visit www.cmu.edu/millergallery or http://juliachristensen.com for more information, or call 412-268-3618. The Regina Gouger Miller Gallery is located in the Purnell Center for the Arts on the Carnegie Mellon University campus, 5000 Forbes Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15213.

Seeing Pittsburgh Exhibit

In celebration of Pittsburgh's 250th anniversary, Rivers of Steel National Heritage Area worked with 44 Pittsburghers from eleven neighborhoods to produce the Seeing Pittsburgh project. Armed with cameras and the instructions to show us what defines their community, these residents photographed the good, the bad, the new, the old, the physical, the emotional...everything that defines their neighborhood.

In Harmony with Nature II: Photos by Donald M. Robinson is a celebration of the works of a nationally acclaimed photographer. For more than 50 years, Don Robinson has explored landscapes, wildlife, and the human condition. From the dawn of nature’s beauty to the last frontiers on Earth, these pictorial essays extend beyond documentation; the collection is a novel of personal experiences and expressions of the universe and all its glory.

At Toastmasters, members learn by speaking to groups and working with others in a supportive environment. A typical Toastmasters club is made up of 10 to 30 people who meet once a week for about an hour. Each meeting gives everyone an opportunity to practice conducting meetings, giving impromptu speeches, presenting prepared speeches, and offering constructive evaluation. We meet on the University Of Pittsburgh's campus in L-5 Clapp Hall (Lowy Room), on the corner of Fifth and Tennyson Avenue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, across from the Cathedral of Learning. We meet from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. every Wednesday of each month.

MIXED UP WEDNESDAYS
Calendar: Local Calendar

10 Sep 2008
"Mixed up Wednesdays" takes place each Wednesday night at Lava Lounge located at 2204 East Carson Street on Pittsburgh's South Side. Resident DJ Ian Friend and special guests Adammmm and Sasqautch of MFPA fame spin classic and current underground dance music, old skool hip hop, 80's new wave and much more. The event runs from 10p.m. to 2a.m. with no cover, drink specials and 50 wings from the Double Wide Grill.
It's hard not get into the groove with the likes of Brazil's own CSS & Bonde Do Role blasting through the speakers. The dj's could at that point twist and turn you directly to france by spinning some of their current underground craze by the likes of Yelle, Ca$hmere or SebastiAn.
It's hard to know where else they will take you with the every growing collection of music and tracks that were purchased and debuted mere hours before the start of the event. One thing is for sure: Mixed Up Wednesdays is not for the faint heart but the party animals.
