Presented in partnership with Terrain Exhibitions & Biennial: ‘A work in Progress’: Pittsburgh-based designer Jason McKoy, artist Jessica Gaynelle Moss and curator Sadie Woods will convene in one of Pittsburgh’s most celebrated Black spaces, The August Wilson African American Cultural Center, to discuss the importance of cultivating, creating and protecting spaces that celebrate our vibrant legacies.
