Art All Night in Lawrenceville for the 14th Year

On Saturday, April 30th, Art All Night is returning for its 14th time. The 24-hour annual event is extending its hours to accommodate younger children and the overwhelming amount of people who attend. Tiffany Wilhelm, a publicity and promotions volunteer for the occasion says that the past two years have brought in about 12,000 people who gather for solidarity and art.

"The biggest overriding theme of the event itself is about community, about coming together, about creativity and all these things that make Lawrenceville and Pittsburgh special."

Wilhelm also says that each year the event has the same structure, but its the volunteers who come with suggestions that make the occasion different. This year, they are having live DJ mixing by local artists. She also notes that the event can be completely different depending on what time you arrive.

Children's activities start will be from 4-8 p.m. on Saturday and also from 10-2 p.m. on Sunday. Throughout the night will be live performances and art on display. Art All Night is spending its second year at the Iron City Brewery Property on 3340 Liberty Avenue. The event is free and open to the public.
