Enter for a chance to win a free signed print of "The Decline" by Christopher Ruane, local Artist & Photographer
Pittsburgh Artist and photographer Christopher Ruane will be exhibiting at the Three Rivers Arts Festival June 13th -15th, booth 213. Stop by and see his massive and complex photographic creations. Sometimes referred to as a narrative artist, most of Christopher’s work tells a story that unfolds as you thoroughly inspect it. His latest work to be unveiled at this year’s festival is titled, The Decline. Specifically targeted for the Pittsburgh crowd, the work transports the viewer decades into a future that the artist hopes never comes to reality. In the image, we see the iconic Duquesne Incline abandoned and almost forgotten. The small and only indication of its resting place is revealed by a glimpse of the Pittsburgh skyline and evidence of vandals. Almost a warning, The Decline, comments on our generation’s lack of interest in things non-technological in nature. Being one of the few remaining inclines in the country, will it stand the test of time and remain a trusted icon of the Steel City or will we become the old man looking back remembering what once was?
Christopher is also giving away a free signed print of the The Decline to one of his new Facebook fans leading up to the festival. Be sure to head over to www.facebook.com/pages/Christopher-Ruane-Photography-and-Fine-Art/158034510894154 before June 13th for a chance to win.
