Spirit of Home: Old to New, a showcase of artwork from refugee and immigrant students at Pittsburgh Arsenal 6th-through-8th grade, will be presented at Blackbird Artist Studios, located at 3583 Butler Street in Lawrenceville. The opening reception will be held Saturday, April 5th from 6 to 9 pm.

Through their Murals Program, the MGR Foundation has teamed up with the Fiber Arts Guild of Pittsburgh, WYEP 91.3 fm, and the Blackbird Artist Studio to bring the stories of Pittsburgh refugee and immigrant students to the forefront.

In recent months, these middle school students have been sharing their lives through the use of fiber arts techniques and by recording their stories and songs at WYEP. Join the students on April 5th when we will celebrate community and the spirit of home!
