Thanks to my good friend Jean McClung for the head's up --

7-11 pm SWOON collaboration!!!!!!

Fri., April 27
"There are so many spaces that don't really need to be brown," renowned street artist Swoon told the New York Times in 2004. Inspired by sources including German expressionist wood-block prints, her life-sized, realistic and often stunning paper cutouts were wheat-pasted in Manhattan streets and alleys, where their decay furthered the art. Gallery shows in Europe and the U.S. followed, as did write-ups in big art mags. This week, Swoon is in Pittsburgh, collaborating with Leslie Stem and Chris Stain on a new installation at Dorothy 6 gallery, You Can Never Hold Back Spring. The opening reception is tonight. BO 7-11 p.m. 416 Library St., Braddock. Free.
