African Arts in the Park appeals to people of all backgrounds and the performance and presentation of African Art is a strong contribution to the cultural district of Pittsburgh. In order to increase the appreciation of the diverse of arts, people must be provided the opportunity of exposure. African Arts in the Park is a wonderful event for such an exposition.
Participants will have the opportunity to view and hear African Art presentations through live stage music; a browse through the vendor marketplace; stop at booths for demonstration of an art form, such as head wrapping or drum-making; or perhaps take part in an interactive workshop such as poetry or spoken word. The festival will bring a variety of African artists and organizations together for two days of celebration and the opportunity to share and demonstrate traditional African and African influenced genres of art.
