PITTSBURGH CRANKIE FEST 2019
AFTER 5PM SAT. TICKETS AT DOOR.  $20 Suggested.


Crankies, or moving panoramas, are an old (and magical!) storytelling multi-media art form. An illustrated scroll is housed in a box frame and is hand-cranked so that it passes across a viewing screen. It may be accompanied by a song, tune or spoken word. Most of the crankies at this year's fest will be back-lit, creating additional drama and warmth.

$20 Suggested / Students $10. All proceeds support artists and cover artist expenses.

ARTIST RECEPTION follows concert with works for sale. Light refreshments provided.

CRANKIE WORKSHOP Sat Nov 9th in Regent Square. Finished work to be performed at Fest. Visit www.wsscpgh.org / see Special Events
