A song that stretches out a mile
More than 21 performers—one on each corner—sing, play, and/or perform sections inspired by The Long Song, a piece written by Pittsburgh artist Jennifer Myers. A song, a performance, a walk, a scene in a film, and public art—all rolled into one.
The work can be experienced by beginning at Highland and Penn and walking the length of the mile, or in sections, from the end to the beginning, or walking backwards and jumping rope.
The Long Song is supported in part by a grant from Awesome Pittsburgh, and is produced in partnership with BOOM Concepts. BOOM will lead a tour of the song starting 4:15pm at Highland Avenue and Penn.
Sunday June 26. 4–6pm
Penn Avenue, between Highland Ave. and Main St.
