September 20th at dusk

join us as we welcome LITTLE AMAL to Pittsburgh

at Carrie Furnace


Please come wearing white (even a white T-shirt is OK!)

The event at Carrie Furnace is suited for children 10 and up. The content, darkness of the space, and audience participation may be overwhelming for small children. The Little Amal events by Casey Droege Cultural Projects and the Office for Public Art (listed below) are more suitable for very young audiences; please consider attending these if you have children!

This event is NOT wheelchair or walker-accessible. Participants will be required to stand and walk for 45 minutes to an hour on rough terrain.

The closest bus routes are the 61B and 61A. There is a 15-minute walk from the bus stop to the site.
