Spring Season, Soon Come!

It's a new year in our new space and we are revved up. The momentum of a fresh start is with us and we've refreshed our engagement with this 'work'. More than 'just a job', we (the Legacy team) talk about the congruence within our lives, that this 'work' of Legacy is a part of how we each chronicle our journeys and tell the stories of our lives. We live through this, extending ourselves to connect with friends and fellow artists in this community of humanity. It is an honor to share in this season of programming. Take a look and see what 'tickles your fancy' and share info with other friends who may find interest. There is much love in the world and we take it upon ourselves as a part of our 'job' to reflect it back!

Before there was Legacy Arts, there was the Pittsburgh Black Theater Dance Ensemble (PBTDE). Under the direction of the late Bob Johnson, the ensemble existed as a part of the University of Pittsburgh yet set its roots deep into the Black arts community of Pittsburgh. Many great years of expression and exploration exposed the PBTDE artists to varied aspects of themselves, birthing in many an unlimited creativity that continues to be passed down to others. The Legacy Arts Project pays tribute to the work that has been done before, honoring the lasting contributions have that have reached through to the present day.
