For a look inside some of our city’s hidden historical sites, join photographer Chuck Beard for “Abandoned Pittsburgh — Art + History.” Discussion will include a visual presentation of Western Penitentiary, Carrie Furnace, Duquesne Steel Works, St. Nicholas Croatian Catholic Church, Carnegie’s Husler Building and more, plus a behind-the-scenes look at an industrial photo shoot.
Chuck Beard is the founder of the Abandoned Pittsburgh project, which has led to the publication of three books in the Abandoned Pittsburgh series, with more planned for the future. The project documents the Steel City’s forgotten industrial and community sites where “beauty in decay” still exists. He is Art Director at Pittsburgh Magazine and a prolific photographer in artistic and journalistic media. He lives in the North Hills of Pittsburgh.
