PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – After the Dollar Bank Three Rivers Arts Festival 2020 was held virtually due to the coronavirus pandemic, the city is taking over the city.
The summer favorite is coming back on a much larger scale this year. The festival will span the entire cultural district and pour into Point State Park, where the main stage was set up.

Along the way you will find a stage on Fort Duquesne Boulevard. You’ll also find loads of food, public art exhibits, markets, and galleries from more than 150 local artists here.
Dr. Amber Epps is one of them. She and 12 other women have an exhibit called “#NotWhite Collective” in the gallery on Liberty Avenue.

“I feel with some of us that it gave us the opportunity to make art that we wouldn’t have done last year,” said Epps.
The exhibition includes works by women, all of whom are not white, and challenges people to think from the perspective of others. It runs until August.
