Art at the Market

Carnegie Museum of Art encourages you to play with your food! A new program, launched during farmer’s market season 2018, saw us sharing our love of fruits and vegetables with audiences in Swissvale, the North Side, and Wilkinsburg. Teaching artists and program director Valerie Herrero traveled to farmer’s markets in these communities to share art-making activities with children and families.
