This Sunday, March 7, the 10.27 Healing Partnership and Uncover Squirrel Hill will be hosting a gallery exhibit as part of campaign to promote healing, friendship and love – as well as support for local small businesses.

Dubbed the “Upstreet Garage Gallery Exhibit,” the show will feature the work of artists of all ages, gathered from the windows of local Squirrel Hill small businesses that participate in the ongoing “No Space for Hate” campaign. The event, which will take place in the heated garage of the Jewish Community Center of Greater Pittsburgh at 5738 Forbes Ave., will allow the public an opportunity to view the works and meet the artists. The event is “family-friendly” and free. Masks and social distancing are required.

“This event is about community, about coming together in a safe way to celebrate the world that we want to create for our kids,” said Maggie Feinstein, director of the 10.27 Healing Partnership, in a prepared statement. “We want to show that Squirrel Hill and all of Pittsburgh stand together in healing, friendship and love, and we invite everyone to join us.”

The Upstreet Garage Gallery Exhibit will be held from 2-4 p.m. PJC
