Keepers of the Flame

Every year, the Legacy Arts Project plays host to events and activities that celebrate local Keepers of the Flame, those who have made lasting contributions to Pittsburgh and the region through their expressions in the arts. Reflecting the vastness, diversity, and beauty of the African Diaspora, these artists teach by way of their craft, inspiring others to recognize their own creativity as well as responsibility for making the world a better place. They are the heroes and sheroes of our community and for that, we share in the celebration of their gifts.
