While NYT reporter Ben Sisario was visiting Pittsburgh, we introduced him to the “Unblurred” Art Crawl Scene on Penn Ave.  Skipping from one gallery to the next, we encountered a whirlwind of fabulous artists, friends and advocates.  We even bumped into Eanna Holton and China Horrell, who appear in the Healthy Artists documentary series.
