AIR = Artist Image Resource - a super awesome resource for anyone interested in printmaking. I taught myself to screenprint in a dark Pittsburgh basement because no one had told me about AIR. This place is a great place to learn about printmaking and screenprinting.
AIR is an artist-run organization that integrates the production of fine art printwork with innovative educational programs that explore the creative process. AIR provides print and imaging services to professional artists and educators. Our goal is to maintain an active and vital imaging laboratory that supports artists and facilitates creative activity.
The Shadow Lounge, which I think is one of the best venue’s in Pittsburgh, has planned a massive party to celebrate their 9th Anniversary!
They have put together an amazing line up of entertainment for the evening. Get your tickets here.

Back in February I read this blog post on The Blog Herald about 2 guys who were planning a bike ride across the country to encourage more geeks to ride bikes to work. When I looked at the map and saw they weren’t planning a stop in a geek friendly, bike friendly city like Pittsburgh – I sent Joe and Carlos an email about making a stop in Pittsburgh.

This is a very interesting time for the automobile industry – it is interesting to think about just how much cars have changed when they were first developed. The exhibit Model T at 100 is at the Frick Musuem until May 3, 2009. has a 1914 Model T as part of their collection and they have borrowed some other Model T’s for the exhibit.
When Henry Ford unveiled the Model T in 1908, few could have anticipated the incredible 19-year production run that awaited the vehicle. Simply put, the car was a revolution on wheels. More than 15 million Model Ts were sold worldwide, placing it among the top-selling automobile models of all time.
A Revolution on Wheels: The Model T at 100 celebrates the T’s birthday with an exhibition of five examples of the Model T, representing a variety of body styles from 1909 to 1926. The Frick has borrowed four models to supplement the 1914 Model T Touring car already in our collection. They include a 1909 Model T Touring Car, a 1917 Model T Runabout, a 1925 Model T ‘Depot Hack,’ and a 1926 Model T Coupe. All were built by the Ford Motor Company in Detroit, Michigan, with the customized body of the ‘Depot Hack’ manufactured by the Calumet Truck Body Corporation in Calumet. Michigan.
