Emigration - Immigration - Migration
The Westmoreland Museum of Art has garnered recent attention from the New York Times for its Emigration-Immigration-Migration exhibit. Featuring photographic imagery to document the faces and experiences of multiple generations of immigrants and their descendants, the exhibit is guided by the premise that “we all come from somewhere.” Emigration - Immigration - Migration highlights the work of five Pittsburgh photographers—Brian Cohen, Scott Goldsmith, Nate Guidry, Lynn Johnson and Annie O’Neill—whose images serve as a lens through which to consider the broader American experience. Through April 22; visit thewestmoreland.org.
Nonprofits and the Call to Moral Leadership
Nearly 400 grantee partners of The Heinz Endowments gathered for a seminar hosted by the foundation, ‘Nonprofits and the Call to Moral Leadership’ at the August Wilson Center. In the wake of Charlottesville, Pittsburgh regional nonprofits explored how to make their voices heard in defense of their organizations’ values and missions, and in support of the individuals they serve. The event addressed critical issues of racial, social and economic equity in our region. Learn more about the event and watch the video.
The Case for Healthier Homes
Mold magnified under a microscope can be a beautiful thing, with brilliant purple shapes overlapping like islands in a violet sea. Mold, lead and radon in homes are anything but lovely, however, and can lead to serious health issues.

CCI’s The Case for Healthier Homes outlines the findings, drawing on input from regional experts and national success stories alike.
