Artists go for the gold

If you’re going to be near Western Pennsylvania next month, it’ll be worth making a detour to check out the third annual Art Olympic Theatre on April 5 in Pittsburgh.

Picture something along the lines of performance art meets Iron Chef. Over two hours, three teams compete to build the best sculpture out of materials provided at the event, plus one suitcase of stuff they’ve selected to bring with them. The shebang is masterminded by Tom Sarver, of the Tom Museum, who’s got a reputation for wacky puppeteering. The event takes place at the Union Project, which is an awesome community center/cafe/art space. 


The details:
Art Olympic Theatre III, 6:30 p.m. Saturday, April 5. Union Project (801 N. Negley Ave., Pittsburgh, www.unionproject.org). $10. If you go, tell Pittsburgh I said Hi!
