Visitors can enjoy weekly musical performances in the exhibit gallery
“BLUE!” is the new exhibit at the Carnegie Science Center that consists of blue blocks of all sizes that invite you to connect with your inner engineer. Now, to make it even more fun, the Carnegie Science Center will have blues and bluegrass performances through the summer months.
The performances are part of the Science Center’s “Big Blue Summer” theme with the weekly performances running on Saturdays, July 5 through August 30, 2014. The music begins at 1:00 p.m. in the BLUE! Gallery and are free with paid general admission. The performances are sponsored by Dollar Bank.
The series begins on July 5th with local blues artist Shari Richards (one of Pittsburgh’s most diverse and popular performers). Shari has toured across the United States and Europe and has performed at jazz, blues, rock, R&B and singer-songwriter events all through the tri-state area.
