More great reasons to visit Pittsburgh this fall...the museums, pleasant autumn weather, and Technology in the Arts. For our out of town guests, sadly you'll miss the exhibition “Fierce Friends: Artists and Animals, 1750-1900” featured in the New York Times this week, but you will have an amazing choice of exhibitions to explore if you so desire. The Carnegie Museum of Art and Museum of Natural History are less than a five minute walk away from the Carnegie Mellon University campus. You can read more about upcoming exhibitions by clicking one of these links:
Or if you prefer to sit in a quiet area and decompress, visit the main branch of the Carnegie Library, also within walking distance from the conference.
As an aside, I'm from Texas where there are only two seasons: "humid" and "hot". Fall is a great time to be in the 'Burgh, especially for those of us from warmer climates...who knew seasons actually changed?! Last October, I saw for the first time in my life the changing of seasons from summer to autumn. It was a truly amazing display of color and shape, and perhaps something taken for granted by people who have seen it many times. May this October in Pittsburgh also bring you unexpected beauty.
