9 ARTISTS 9 NEIGHBORHOODS
In Summer 2018, Associated Artists of Pittsburgh partnered with PCTV21 to produce a series of videos featuring AAP artists in the neighborhoods. Using Pittsburgh’s nine districts as a guide, AAP selected artists that either resided or maintained a studio within one of Pittsburgh’s districts; and PCTV21 staff and interns spent time with each of the artists in their spaces. PCTV21 produced the videos, and they are featured on both their television and web presence.
