Dear visitors,
We are pleased to exclaim that the first Pitsburgh Visionary Arts Festival was a complete success!!!
We received much much great input and there was a generally awesome response from the public, media, artists and everyone involved. Work was sold, connections amongst cool people were made, and lots of new opportunities and initiatives have emerged.
Now we are working on building and organizing all the wonderful images and footage, and working towards being able to do this once more in 2011...
In the meantime, here are a couple of images to give a sense of how the VAF rolled. Soon, on our website, we will have more images and documentation of this very succesful first year, as well as information regarding the future of the VAF, as far as applications, lineup, concepts and ideas.

Photographs courtesy of Alberto Almarza, Mihnea Vasilescu and Sarah Habib. Video designed by Nicole Capozzi, Boxheart Expressions.

Also, an awesome document of HiTEC's book release and performance (or rather Uncert) on their first day at the VAF. Stay tuned for the next installments with footage of their other two performances, courtesy of tENTATIVELY a cONVENIENCE .
Infinite thanks to all of HiTEC for so generously donating their time to rock out the VAF!
