"Welcome To SamSamland: Don't Wear Black to My Funeral" will be a gallery and music event curated by Sam Perry of Grove City University. SamSamland's key focus is the balance between celebrating and mourning life. This will be done through the exploration of trauma and its effect on the individual and community. SamSamland serves as a freeing space for victims of trauma and their family and friends as well as an educational experience for all those involved. Recycled materials will be used for all of the pieces, showing that beauty can be created out of everyone's damaged goods. For more information, check out samsamland's blog or search "Welcome to SamSamland" on Facebook.

Passports has been working with Life Pittsburgh for three years to produce art created from recycled items! Seniors have stamped vintage fabric, rolled paper beads made of magazines and wrapping paper, repurposed old string, sewed, pasted and collaged their way into producing many incredible works of art for the walls and common spaces of several local senior day cares. Other Life Centers hosting art by Passports are in the Hill District and on the North Shore. The Organization founders, Christine Bethea and Brenda Brown, have plans to work with other companies that cater to the senior population in the region, in the near future.
