Carnegie Museum of Art

A People's History of Pittsburgh is a collective photo album for the people of Pittsburgh and its surrounding metropolitan area led by Pittsburgh photographers Melissa Catanese and Ed Panar, cofounders of Spaces Corners bookstore. Fueled by those who still live here, or those in the Pittsburgh diaspora, this project invites you, the public, to contribute family-owned, found, or anonymous photographs and share your unique stories about life experiences from this region.

Bring your favorite Pittsburgh photos and join us for the 11th scanning day on-site at Carnegie Museum of Art. We'll help you scan your images and add them to the project where they will be viewable on as part of the People's History. This project will serve as an ever-growing archive of local photography and your work may be chosen to appear in an eventual print publication. 

Visitors who bring a hardcopy of a photo for the scanning project will receive free museum admission!
