The inaugural Pittsburgh Humanities Festival March 26-29 will span several Pittsburgh neighborhoods, including Northside.
The Andy Warhol Museum in North Shore will be hosting Cynthia Hopkins during the Saturday night portion of the event at 8 p.m. Hopkins will perform “A Living Documentary,” which details her struggles of making a name for herself in New York City’s theater world. This one-woman show includes aspects of comedy, biography, and storytelling to give the audience an unforgettable experience.
Hopkins is a performance artist who has performed in the Northside before. In 2007, she performed “Accidental Nostalgia” at the New Hazlett Theater in Allegheny Center and the Andy Warhol Museum.

The Humanities Center at Carnegie Mellon University in conjunction with the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is sponsoring all of the festival’s events. Titled, “Smart Talk About Stuff That Matters,” the first festival of its kind in the city aims to engage the public in intellectual conversations with experts, artists, and reformers about topics ranging from music to politics.
