Struggling industrial center turned cultural breeding ground.
Museums. Visit the iconic Andy Warhol Museum (117 Sandusky St.; warhol.org)
for an infusion of pop art, the Carnegie Museum of Art (4400 Forbes Ave.; cmoa.org)
for an upcoming exhibit on modern decorative arts and the Mattress Factory (500 Sampsonia Way; mattress.org)
for “room-sized” installations of contemporary art.
While Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater (fallingwater.org)
is the city’s most famous architectural landmark, H. H. Richardson’s Emmanuel Episcopal Church (emmanuelpgh.org)
is worth a visit. The building features Tiffany windows and a wood interior reminiscent of an inverted ship’s hull.
The Pittsburgh Glass Center (5472 Penn Ave.; pittsburghglasscenter.org),
where visitors can tour galleries of ornate glasswork or take a glassblowing class themselves.
