Car Toons

See some art on the go. Penn Ave Arts in Motion blends with the Pittsburgh Art Car Festival to bring a day of free community fun focused on Art and Mobile Masterpieces! This community celebration includes a variety of entertainment for all ages. The Pittsburgh Art Car Festival will showcase creative modes of transportation including decked out whips, frankenrods, muscle, classic cars, tricycles, bicycles, big wheels, Art Cars, and more. The event gears up on September 19 at 5231 Penn Avenue (on the corner of Penn and N. Atlantic Avenue). For more information, go here.



Jennifer Schaupp’s “Woman in the Raw” is generated from her personal blog entries, monologues, and Facebook status updates. The show will string together sarcastic and introspective musings ranging from a crush on singer Gwen Stefani to whether people actually care. The main character, played by Joanna Lowe, goes about a typical morning, sharing her eclectic thoughts with herself and any audience member willing to listen, all the while plugged in to social media channels. “Woman in the Raw” is at the Maker Theater, 5950 Ellsworth Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15232.
