ART Excursion to Pittsburgh- Fallingwater visit on the way!!
Three artists from ARTsisters and one from the Regional Center for Women in the Arts took a motor trip to Pittsburgh for 2 nights to visit points of ART interest in August 2011. We stopped at Fallingwater on the way there. Fallingwater is a home designed for the Kauffman family 75 years ago by Frank Lloyd Wright 90 minutes outside of Pittsburgh. It is quite amazing!!
Pittsburgh is a wonderful city. I had not been there in 40 years. The three rivers meet at the point. The city is small enough to get around. It is noticeably clean and friendly. There are more bridges in Pittsburgh than in Venice!! We visited many art galleries and had a wonderful time but did not have time to see the museums so we need to get back. In my next post I will tell you more about a unique art venue called the Mattress Factory.
