Unblurred: First Fridays on Penn

Unblurred is a monthly event that opens the Penn Avenue Arts District (4800-5500 Penn) for exploration by adults and children. The event takes place on the first Friday of every month starting at 6:00pm and lasting until 2:00am. Most events are free and some establishments offer discounts on food and drink.

Various galleries in the Penn Avenue Arts District (4800-5500 Penn Avenue) will open their doors and showcase a variety of artwork and performances. Guests will experience new art and meet the most eclectic array of art makers, old and young, modern and classical, famous and amateur, emerging and veteran, all within walking distance of each other.

The evening brings people of all backgrounds together to socialize, mingle and enjoy the art and entertainment around them. Many of the district’s performance studios often involve their audience in the creative process. Both Dance Alloy and the Pittsburgh Glass Center engage their audiences into the creative processes of dance and glass making.

Participating art venues range from all mediums of art – glass, dance, sculpture, clothing, paintings, clay, spoken word and a vast array of music. There is a little taste of everything on Penn Avenue!
