This year more than ever, we want to celebrate and cultivate local talent. Our 2017 festival theme is It Takes A Village. We want to utilize the work of homegrown artists, young and old, and highlight their work in new ways. Pittsburgh is blessed with many strong, influential and vibrant arts-based artists, and we here at Ryan Arts (a Focus on Renewal Program) are determined to provide enriching experiences in the arts for families and individuals.

We will have Facepainting, dance performances, interactive theater, community discussion, a dance party, food and family activities over a weekend of African American Art! We will also be doing three drawings for a free semester of classes!

We ask that you please register on our EVENTBRITE site so we can make proper accommodations for childcare and refreshments.
