Silver Eye is honored to present Still Standing by Hannah Price, made while an African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund Fellow with the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Whether honoring Black cultural figures or supporting Black centers of creativity, the Trust brings attention to the importance of historical memory and cultural continuity.
Price documented the restoration of historic buildings in the Hill District and Homewood neighborhoods of Pittsburgh. These included the August Wilson House, the National Negro Opera Company House, and the New Granada Theater. Still Standing includes Price’s portraits of people living in the communities around these landmarks today. These portraits reflect that these structures exist in thriving communities whose heritage inspires the creative life of the Hill District and Homewood now and in the future.
Zeal Eva’s Gentle Landing is a small step in the journey towards self-actualization for the artist who has found herself these past five years in a search for home, while actively finding moments of pause, peace, and humanity in the everyday and the “what’s next?” This exhibition is part of Silver Eye's Pittsburgh Presents series, a year-round project to highlight the work of extraordinary artists and image-makers working in our community.
