This event may return for future promotions.
A-HOY! from “quarantine”. This is Pixburgh, your host for the moment. First, let me apologize for the cryptic theme.. You see.., I’m a sucker for “black and gold”. Plus, the biohazard symbol seems all too appropriate right now with current events. Its been a trying past few weeks indeed; with many more to come. I know you’re probably sick and tired of all the negative news; so here is a little-bit about what we are up to here at Pixelburgh to give back to the artist that brighten up our incredible city with all their creativity. We are passionate about supporting our city any way we can ✊🏽. The current situation with the Novel Coronavirus outbreak puts the entire Country in unknown territory. Big and small businesses alike are struggling to keep their doors open. (us included) *Shrug*. It is what it is, times are hard… Especially for an Artist. For most people, being an Artist is rarely about the money in the first place.
Being an Artist according to Amy at Pikaland is:
“Putting your best foot forward everyday to create things that make a difference; whether that difference is for you, or for others.”
I firmly stand behind that quote. Artistry is a humbling profession. It’s too bad we need money in order to exist. Looking back now it’s hard to believe there was a time when I would be happy to be paid with paint and pastels 😆. Yeah… I guess maybe we DO need to eat… Sometimes… In-between this project, that project… Sacrificing a bill or two this month, to finish a project that might pay the bills NEXT month.. 🤷🏽♂️… At the end of the day; you just want to do what you love, while getting paid to do it! With that said, trust me when I say that we understand. Us Artists are very valuable assets. We leave our mark throughout the City, throughout the world, literally brightening everyone’s lives with colors, sounds, and performances. Without us, Gotham 🦇.. I mean Pittsburgh.. Would be dull and grey.. er..
