The Fourth River: An Underground Art Affair

Pittsburgh is a city of rivers. How many? 3 you say? Ah, but don't you know there's a secret FOURTH river lurking beneath the land?

No matter how many rivers there really are, each year where they meet there is a festival. It is a grand festival that celebrates all forms and genres of art. The people gather, rejoice, and support the arts. It is, of course, the Three Rivers Arts Festival, and everyone always goes home happy.

This year is different. There will be no gathering because there will be no festival. At least not a traditional one like has happened each year for decades.

That's why I've gathered 8 artists to have a virtual festival, which like Pittsburgh's mysterious 4th river will remain "Underground.  Behold, The Fourth River: An Underground Art Affair. We will still gather but from a safe distance.

We will still rejoice in the splendor of the art that is shared. We will still be able to purchase that art thereby supporting the artists. And we don't have to go home, because we will already be there, shopping or observing from our couch with our feet up and a drink in our hand!

**Please make sure to FOLLOW JP ON FACEBOOK as this is where most everything will happen.  Also RSVP to the event page on Facebook to see the latest updates as this will run from June 5 through June 14, the same days as the original festival**
