Each year, the Art Institute of Pittsburgh celebrates its alumni
. This year’s exhibit, Impractical Magic: The Other Side of Practical, defies the expression long told to art students: “You can’t do that!”
Works from departments across the school will display the unusual and unexpected paths this group of alumni have paved. The disciplines represented include media arts and animation, fashion illustration, fashion and retail management, digital film and video production, industrial design, visual communications and game art and design.
Curated by Media Arts and Animation Professor Angela Love, the exhibit demonstrates achievements in different vocations, all built on a foundation learned at their alma mater.
Impractical Magic is showing now through July 22 at The Art Institute of Pittsburgh, 420 Boulevard of the Allies, Downtown. Hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Saturday. For more information about the Art Institute of Pittsburgh's alumni, call (412) 291-6200.
