Inside Out, free outdoor summer programming series, returns June 4 for its second season at the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh’s Oakland neighborhood.
Promising everything from family-friendly fun to nightlife entertainment, Inside Out is designed to celebrate Pittsburgh’s rich cultural landscape with performances, activities, food and drink.
The series will run through Aug. 13, centered in the Sculpture Court between the art museum and the Carnegie Museum of Natural History. Performances, DJs, art activities, local food trucks and beverages will be offered from 5 to 9 p.m. Thursdays and noon to 5 p.m. Saturdays.
“What’s really wonderful is that people come to Inside Out for so many different reasons,” said Dana Bishop-Root, CMOA director of education and public programs.
“We see Thursday evening as a special after-work destination, and we’re once again so excited to work with local curators of nightlife in the city,” she said. Thursday events will feature various DJ crews from around the city, along with their special guests.
Inside Out Night, a special 21-and-older party under the stars, will take place July 15. STAYCEE PEARL dance project & Soy Sos will present “CIRCLES: Going Off,” a dance party version of their full-length choreographic performance, layering movement, visual arts, MCs, DJs, electronics and a live original score.
“Everyone who comes will be part of the performance,” Bishop-Root said.

The second season of free Inside Out programming begins June 4 at the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh.

Saturday programming is designed for visitors to spend a whole day at the museum.
“You can come to the museum in the morning, come outside for a performance, have lunch from a food truck, then see the exhibitions inside, then come back outside and end the day with more music,” Bishop-Root said.
Featured performers will be a mix of returnees and new acts.
Returning performers such as PearlArts and Hugo Cruz and Caminos will expand on their performances from last summer, while Hill Dance Academy Theater and the Bill Henry Band will be among those making their Inside Out premieres.
Food trucks on-site will be Alberta’s Pizza, El Rincon Oaxaqueño, Caribbean Vybz, Soul Biscuit and others. Trace Brewing will serve as this year’s official brewery partner.
Site-specific pavilion
For this second iteration, artist Rafael Domenech will transform the Sculpture Court into a site-specific pavilion commissioned for the upcoming 58th Carnegie International, which opens Sept. 24. The installation will be unveiled at the June 4 Inside Out opening.
“The material that the pavilion is made of references the work in progress that we see when we walk through city streets,” Bishop-Root said. “The material is scaffolding. When you walk by a building under construction, you walk through this kind of beautiful tunnel made of scaffolding and mesh, so Rafael uses both of those materials to create a pavilion itself, which will be in the shape of an ellipse.”
Domenech also will create special furniture that will be part of the installation.
“Rafael’s installation also is about creating a place of living language, of thinking of the ways in which, when people get together, they use language and transform language together,” Bishop-Root said. Thursday night visitors will be invited to bring their art-making and writing tools to create art and community with museum educators.
Connecting Inside Out with the upcoming International “is a very tangible way of seeing the ways in which our regional artists have the opportunity to create performances that are in direct conversation with the artists in the International,” Bishop-Root said. “From the very beginning, we’ve been thinking about the International in terms of how our local performers and musicians can use the International as inspiration and to recognize that it is in dialogue with what artists are doing locally.”
Through the run of Inside Out, Domenech will conduct three lantern-making workshops.
The Carnegie Museum of Art is at 4400 Forbes Ave. The full lineup of Inside Out events and programs can be found at cmoa.org.
