Closing January 14 at the Senator John Heinz History Center is the Art of Facts | Uncovering Pittsburgh Stories, featuring 53 works of art by members of the Pittsburgh Society of Illustrators (PSI).
The exhibit draws on the history of western Pennsylvania to visualize stories through illustration. PSI is the second largest group of illustrators in the U.S. The works depict everything from Andrew Carnegie’s job at age 13 in a textile mill to Walt Disney’s visit to Westinghouse to the story of Pittsburgh’s lost “H.”
In addition to the art, the exhibit includes a video showing how illustrators work.
