The Pittsburgh cultural trust says it will work closely with the Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh to produce 2009 Three Rivers Arts Festival without a hitch. Trust President Kevin Mc Mahon says that will mean a lot of work in the next 7 months. He says the Trust will use the 2009 event as a time to gather input from the community as to what they would like to see in future events. Mc Mahon says the trust has gotten into the business of running other community events like First Night and the Children’s Festival and has built a certain level of competence. He says they will work to make the arts festival a self sufficient event but he knows that will require the involvement of sponsors and the foundation community. The festival was first held in 1959.
