Thank you to those who visited the North Hills Art Center on September 28 as we Celebrated our 60th Anniversary and helped RAD (Allegheny Regional Asset District*) celebrate its 25th year. Our Executive Director, Kim Freithaler, and Board President Diane Pontoriero met with Jim Cunningham of WQED to talk about the North Hills Art Center. You can listen to the podcast here.
Thank you also to the wonderful volunteers who helped 'make it all happen'! Without the support of our volunteers, members, board and staff, we would not be able to provide events like this. If you attended our event, please leave a review on Facebook. Your feedback helps us to bring more FREE events, informative demos and lectures to the Art Center. f
