Pittsburgh First Art and Technology Festival On Penn Avenue April 2, 2010 is Wierd Science Wonderful Fashion, Wacky Fun For All!

If you've ever or never been to an "Unblurred" First Fridays art crawl on Penn Avenue (mostly in the 4800-5500 blocks), then your are in for a rare treat. The Geek Art + Green Innovators is a platform to showcase current, eccentric and electrifying innovations from the "green" and technology industries in Pittsburgh and beyond.

Some of the offerings will include tap dancing on salvage at the Dance Alloy, a cool too-human robot, called "Yumie" from CMU's Entertainment Technology Center, a solar powered car, an invention that turns children's play into energy, several technology and ecology art exhibitions (take your pick), or maybe you'll play a game of chess with Abe Lincoln or view an eco-chic fashion show that features a "blow fish" dress. It's all happening on Friday April 2--yes that's Good Friday--at GA/GI (Pronouced GAH-gee)! It all begins with GA/GI DAY children's activities from 10 am to noon at the Union Project, 801 N. Negley Avenue and then things move to GA/GI Night from 5 pm to 11 pm. on Penn Avenue. Get the Full details on their blog. Click here.
