Don’t miss everyone’s favorite Philadelphia artist Zoe Strauss, this Thursday evening at 6:30 for a free artist talk in the Carnegie Museum of Art Theater. Zoe will be talking about her past work, along with her project for the 2013 Carnegie International. For the International, Zoe made frequent trips to Homestead and then lived there for two months, opening a public portrait studio where she took hundreds of portraits of the citizens of Homestead. The studio also included an incredible library of books and historical documents chronicling the Homestead Strike, as well as histories of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Museum of Art, Andrew Carnegie, art history, and labor history. Many of the portraits she made are on view at the Carnegie Museum of Art, along with street photography, large-scale photographic murals, and videos.
