Call for Submissions: Exploring Selfie Monday October 06, 2014 - 11/11/2014Call for Submissions
Call for Submissions: Exploring Selfie
The Westmoreland Museum of American Art is exploring the concept of creative selfie taking and invites you to send us your best and most creative selfie to share as part of a month long interactive exhibition.

For hundreds of years, artists have been creating compelling, intriguing, provocative and creative self-portraits that endeavor to showcase their skill and express who they are. Since the invention of the camera, people have been taking self-portraits, and today we seem more intent than ever on capturing images of ourselves. The selfie phenomenon exploded onto social media and into our consciousness a few years ago and shows no sign of abating as ever more creative ways to take selfies appear almost weekly it seems.

Here is your chance to take a selfie that pushes the boundaries of creativity and self-expression and to share it with visitors of The Westmoreland from now until November 11. Please send your creative selfie to selfie@wmuseumaa.org, and we will print it out and add it to the gallery wall. Or, if you live locally and plan to visit, please feel free to bring a printed selfie to add to the gallery.

In addition to your photo, please tell us
1.) what selfies mean to you
2.) why and how often you take them
3.) how you share them with others

The selfie gallery will be on view from now until November 11.

Submit your selfie today!

Putt Putt Party Saturday November 08, 2014 Special Event
Putt Putt Party
Step up to the tee to raise a little green for the Greensburg YMCA and the Westmoreland Museum of American Art children's programs!

Putt Putt Party 2013 was a Hole in One: in it's first year, thanks to our 120 guests and 16 sponsors, the event raised almost $10,000 in proceeds for the Strong Kids Campaign and Imagine Nation programs.

This year, let's tee off for a second round with double the fun, double the attendance, and double the proceeds! The Second Annual Putt Putt Party will feature a nine-hole miniature golf course designed and built by students at the Central Westmoreland Career and Technical Center and transformed into works of art by local artists. This year, the artists will base their designs on paintings from The Westmoreland's collection, and the course will be set inside the Museum's temporary location on route 30, Westmoreland @rt 30.

For $50 dollars, you will not only support two great children's programs, but also enjoy food stations from some of the area's best local restaurants, a bar including several Putt Putt cocktails, live music, creative takes on the Museum's art collection and tons of Putt Putt fun! Bring your own team, come as a single golfer or even a spectator and join in the party!

The course will also be open for our Imagine Nation and Strong Kids families to come and enjoy for free on Sunday, November 9, 2014 from 11 AM - 3 PM (no registration required).

Pop-Up Studio with Richard Claraval Wednesday December 10, 2014 Adult Studio
Pop-Up Studio with Richard Claraval
Experimenting with a process that fuses the human figure with abstract gesture, attendees will make dynamic drawings that seem to breathe life and movement into charcoal figures and the empty space surrounding them. You don't need to possess a mastery of figure drawing to enjoy this experience. By combining tracings from the works of masters with your own rhythmic abstractions made with charcoal, you'll be amazed at how lively drawing can be and how alive your artwork will appear!

Wine, beer, snacks and materials will be provided.

Space is limited. Reserve your spot today online or by calling 724-837-1500 ext. 110
