The Cultural District is Formed

Since 1984, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, a non-profit arts organization, has worked to make the Steel City a place where the arts can flourish. Our efforts have focused on the cultural and economic development of the Cultural District, a 14-square-block area of downtown Pittsburgh. What was once a downtrodden red light district now thrives as a vibrant center for culture, art, food, and community. Pittsburgh’s Cultural District stands as a nationwide model for how the arts can play a pivotal role in urban revitalization.

Calm In A Chaotic World

It’s a crazy world that we live in and with all of the chaos (defined as disorder and confusion) it is important to try to keep some resemblance of normality. Many of my friends and peers are doing the best that they can without feeding into the false news or making things worse. We have so many people that we know that are affected by the closures and shut downs that I thought it important to have our normal Monday night.

Focus tonight on some of the different resources available to everyone and some of the things that you can do to Stay Calm  with this pandemic that is affecting us all.

Craig Davis says…

“I was a resident in both the Star Loft and Sky Loft for 2 ½ years; both apartments are beautiful, clean, and well maintained. You can’t find a better location to live in Pittsburgh- right in the heart of the cultural district, within walking distance to all downtown businesses, theaters, restaurants and nightlife. Charlie and Janet are the perfect landlords- professional, responsive, and above all kind. I will miss them and would enthusiastically recommend their beautiful building to anyone.”

Life & Death of Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones

In the mid ’60s, Brian Jones emerged as the poster boy of the Swingin’ London scene, topping the charts with The Rolling Stones and dating model/actress Anita Pallenberg. However, his excessive lifestyle and his reputation as “the original bad boy of Rock & Roll” cost him dearly. Targeted by the authorities and media, he spiraled out of control, losing both Anita and the respect of the Stones. Two years later, Brian was found at the bottom of his swimming pool, the verdict: death by misadventure. During the last 50 years many theories have emerged claiming that Brian was murdered and that it was covered up at high level; as this film discovers, the evidence for this is extremely compelling.

Long-time Rolling Stones bass guitarist Bill Wyman said of Jones, “He formed the band. He chose the members. He named the band. He chose the music we played. He got us gigs. … he was very influential, very important, and then slowly lost it – highly intelligent – and just kind of wasted it and blew it all away.”
