Big Picture

INSIDE OUT RETURNS THIS SUMMER to Carnegie Museum of Art’s Sculpture Court—this time in an immersive pavilion created by artist Rafael Domenech, which the museum commissioned as part of the 58th Carnegie International. Some of the city’s most dynamic DJs are scheduled for Thursday nights, and Saturdays will feature live performances by regional artists and art groups, some new to Inside Out and some that also performed last year during the event series.
