Tech Council goes "artsy"

The Pittsburgh Technology Council launches its first venture into the world of art this week when it opens its “15 minutes” gallery exhibition. The Tech Council put out a call for artwork from Southwestern Pennsylvania residents in an effort to show how innovation plays a roll in both the world of technology and the art world. 74 works from 46 artists will be on display at the Tech Council’s office on Technology Drive through August 29th with an opening gala Thursday. Tech Council Art director Kim Harvey says the council was so pleased with the response that it hopes to take other stabs at melding the art and technology worlds. The title of the show is a play on the Andy Warhol 15 minutes of fame quote.
