This exhibition reveals Pittsburgh as a major center of design, where avant-garde art met cutting-edge materials that transformed America.

From the roaring 1920s to the swinging 1960s, pioneers at Carnegie Institute of Technology, Kaufmann’s Department Store and manufacturers such as Westinghouse, PPG and Alcoa formed a collective network of brave experimentation, education, and promotion of progressive design.

“Hot Metal Modern” showcases great design objects from around Pittsburgh, and the stories of innovation and industry behind them.
