Eugene Smith, Esther Bubley, and Duane Michals, to contemporary artists making work throughout the region today. Through our partnership with Assemble and Silver Eye Fellowship 17 winner Francis Crisafio, Past Present Future also includes stunning self-portraits through photography and collage made by several young neighborhood artists.

Woman: The Art of Danielle Robinson
This exhibit invites you to experience the artistic vision of Danielle Robinson. Come out and enjoy new works by the artist and experience her work up close and personal. Danielle Robinson, visual artist and painter. Danielle has worked with a variety of artists and musicians in the Pittsburgh area. She creates visuals that are a mixture of cartoon/comic style and realism, with acrylic paint on canvas. Her pieces are stories of black women represented as powerful, royal, majestic, dark and fantasy driven. Black women, nature and animals are the inspiration for her body of work. The connection of the three is commonly shown in her work. "We lack representation. We can be powerful just like Superman and Wonder Woman. Black girls NEED to know they are magical...we can have dragons too, ya know..." -Danielle Robinson
