The WCDC is working with Casey Droege Cultural Productions to transform the workshop space in our newly renovated headquarters located in the historic Lohr Building into a gallery-level display space for local, Wilkinsburg artists. The Art All Over program was launched in 2020 A partnership with the Sleeping Octopus Artist Initiative (SOAI). The initiative will celebrate and promote the many accomplished artists who live in the Wilkinsburg area.
In order to respect social distancing, the WCDC is embracing technology and social media to allow the public to enjoy local art in new ways. From the comfort of your home you can experience the exhibits through photos and a virtual artist talks and tours online. You can also visit the show in person with the artist.

Virtual Artist Talk
November 11th, 6pm
In her lens-based practice, Centa Schumacher uses abstraction and luminance to explore ideas of consciousness and the indefinite. Uninterested in what the camera can do as a factual recording device, Schumacher works with a lens assembled from vintage camera elements, creating a unique tool that distorts light and perspective. The resulting images become a portal between natural phenomena and the unseen world.
