The recital brought dancing, performance, and fashion related to Filipino weddings and courtship to the stage and raised money for Brother’s Brother Foundation’s relief work around the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda, which devastated parts of the central Philippines. More photos and words on the event and foundation from the Tribune-Review’s Matt Santoni.

Asher Reny-Toledo, visiting from New York City, walks through a door from artist Yayoi Kusama’s “Repetitive Vision” installation into her “Infinity Dots Mirrored Room” installation at the Mattress Factory in Pittsburgh, PA on Wednesday, January 2, 2013.  The room sized works, assembled in 1996, have walls and ceilings made of mirrors and Formica floors with polka dot decals that reflect in the mirrors around the viewer.

By J Henry Fair - Industrial Scars

“My work is a response to my vision of society,” says Fair. “I see our culture as being addicted to petroleum and the unsustainable consumption of other natural resources, which seems to portend a future of scarcity. My vision is of a different possibility, arrived at through careful husbandry of resources and adjustment of our desires and consumption patterns toward a future of health and plenty.

“To gear our civilization toward sustainability does not necessitate sacrifice today, as many naysayers would argue, but simply adjustment. There are many societies existing at present that have a standard of living at least as high as ours while consuming and polluting a fraction of what is the norm in the United States.”

Ellis Stokes, 9, of Baldwin, visits Andy Warhol’s grave on what would be Warhol’s 86th birthday in St. John the Baptist Byzantine Catholic Cemetery in Bethel Park on  Monday, August 6, 2012.  Stokes, who is a Warhol fan, also wrote him a birthday card and added it to a folder of assorted notes left for the famous artist.  The notes, along with photos of the evolution of soup cans and other memorabilia left at the artist’s final resting place, are then collected as part of artist Madelyn Roehrig’s ongoing documentation of Warhol’s grave.
