Project

August Wilson: A Writer’s Landscape will be the first-ever exhibition dedicated to the life and works of Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright August Wilson. The 1,800 square foot permanent exhibition will explore the people and places of Pittsburgh, where Wilson was born and raised, and which had a profound impact on shaping his worldview and inspiring his unprecedented 10-play American Century Cycle. A Writer’s Landscape, which will be free of charge and open daily, expands the AWAACC’s mission to offer programs and resources that advance Wilson’s legacy, celebrate Black culture, and champion future innovators in arts and culture.

 

Progress

The Writer’s Landscape project is complete and anticipates a public opening in spring 2022. The 3,600 square foot permanent exhibition will explore the people and places of Pittsburgh, where Wilson was born and raised, and which had a profound impact on shaping his worldview and inspiring his unprecedented 10-play American Century Cycle.
