Pittsburgh Collects

Pittsburgh has an impressive and influential legacy in terms of being home to, and serving as inspiration for, innovative photographers--from Teenie Harris and W. Eugene Smith, to Dorothea Lange and Aaronel deRoy Gruber--pioneering figures whose works and careers have recently been examined via major museum exhibitions, scholarly catalogues and documentary films. With Pittsburgh Collects, Silver Eye turned its lens to the art of collecting images, sharing with the public a behind-the-scenes look at the choices, tastes and contributions of three influential local collectors. Those collectors -- Evan Mirapaul, Graham Shearing and one anonymous collector -- were selected by Brian Lang, curator of BNY Mellon's corporate art collection in Pittsburgh, and Marcia Rosenthal, an independent art consultant/fine art appraiser.
