Brett Yasko Curates Project Featuring 252 Portraits of One Person

John Riegert is an almost two-year-long project curated by Brett Yasko, a graphic designer and adjunct faculty member at Carnegie Mellon University’s School of Design, which asks the question, “What happens when an entire artistic community addresses the same subject?” John Riegert, which opened at the SPACE Gallery in Pittsburgh on June 24th and runs until September 4th, features portraits of Riegert done by 252 artists from the Pittsburgh area.

412-OCTAVIA is a physical installation and web platform designed for the Octopus Garden, a community garden in Pittsburgh. The installation enables users to hear community narratives and also to contribute their own individual narratives. This project leverages tangible, natural interactions that are currently happening in the garden and uses embedded technology to allow users, regardless of age, to engage in the community dialogue.
