I do, however, have a lot of friends who love the genre. It was because of my curiosity and wanting to know what all the hype was about around K-pop that I decided to go to the event. The event was K...

  • Feminist Exhibit

    Something that makes Pittsburgh so unique is its interdisciplinary culture, with the sciences, the arts, and technology all in one place. From all the public art installations throughout the city to the self driving cars that roam the streets, these are the kinds of things that really define Pittsburgh.
