Why Artists Should Move To Pittsburgh: Two Posts By Karen Lillis on Pop City

Occasional Diggingpitt contributor, Karen Lillis has a two part piece on Pop City on the things that make Pittsburgh a great place for artists, including a bunch of personal stories.

Part 1

Part 2

I still think a ton of progress needs to be made in opening up and allowing more flexible use of the large studio type buildings artist's need and crave, as well as building a much more supportive city with more connections and interactions with the outside world.

Karen states pretty clearly is that the greater affordability allows artists more time to work. Artists themselves need to put the DYI, energy into making things happen.
