PITT ARTS Holiday Luncheon
Featuring Attack Theatre Dance
WPU Assembly Room
Tuesday, December 3, 2013, 1-2 PM
PITT ARTS invites you to enjoy lunch, cookies, hot chocolate and a chance to see Attack Theatre’s rambunctious physicality and wit, set to the sounds of classical, jazz, and klezmer music. In Holiday Unwrapped, the frenetic season becomes a fantastical journey where socks become ice skates, empty packages become turntables, and the dinner table has a life of its own - all with the message that it’s better to dance with the box on your head than to fret over what’s inside.
Free lunch and festive holiday treats! No need to sign up, just show up and bring a friend!

Sherlock Holmes and the Crucifer of Blood
The Charity Randall Theatre
December 4 – 21, 2013
Two murders and a treasure chest filled with jewels lead to a blood oath and an uncanny mystery that the master detective must solve before more fall victim. Amid fog-shrouded London, Holmes and Watson confront danger and an ingenious villain intent on making a curse come true. This exotic and thrilling mystery driven by greed, deceit and murder takes us from India to Baker Street to spooky Pondicherry Lodge in Maidenhead, to a Limehouse opium den to a boat chase on the Thames, and finally back to Baker Street for a surprise denouement. Fun for groups and the whole family!

Martin Creed: More and Less
Now- November 26
The University of Pittsburgh Museum Studies Exhibition Seminar is pleased to present MARTIN CREED: more and less, a solo exhibition of Creed’s genre-bending work. Though he draws on the strategies of Arte Povera, Minimalism, and Conceptual Art, Creed -- whose artistic process is intrinsically linked to his emotions, calls himself an Expressionist. The exhibition offers simple, direct questions about the function, purpose and place of art. Utilizing seemingly mundane objects, Creed explores themes of repetition, order, comfort, equality, and isolation, inviting the viewer to discover the everyday as art.
