Bringing Artists and Community Together.
The Yingling Mansion, AKA The Sleeping Octopus, located on 1300 Wood St. in Wilkinsburg PA, hosts a variety of events. One, in particular, is the PGH Art Jam that has around 20 Artists demonstrating their skills including Stained Glass, Clay Sculpting, Wire Sculpting, Painting, Drawing, Garment Making, & Body Painting, to name a few. This year there will be Fire Performances by Flow' Nat and live music. The event gives local Pittsburgh artists an opportunity to create and converse with one another and provides an outlet to have their work seen by an appreciative, public audience. It also brings the community together using original art production as the catalyst for a fun experience. There will also be a food truck and beer sponsor (The Dancing Gnome). Along with the event, there is an ongoing exhibit throughout the house showcasing a variety of paintings and sculptures. The next one is July 24 from 6 – 11 PM, featuring 20 Artists. The Art Jam is child friendly also with one of the participants, in the past, being 12 years of age. The next Art Jam is scheduled for Sept 25th as an early Halloween event! We hope to assist the creative community by connecting the people through creative entertainment.

**Artist Line up will be announced soon.
