Family Pictures USA: Our Pittsburgh Family Album
February 12 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh and MuseumLab are working with the Family Pictures USA Institute for Inclusive Storytelling to host a special family event!
OUR PITTSBURGH FAMILY ALBUM
Sunday, February 12
9:00 am – 5:00 pm
We invite community members to bring in family photos and share their stories to help build a collective portrait of our amazing city.
The event will feature:
- Video interview and portrait stations with the Family Pictures USA team
- Digitization stations and technical support to preserve your family memories
- Opportunities to connect and share your family’s story with neighbors from across Pittsburgh
Family Pictures USA will film short interviews and images for a nationally televised documentary for PBS (think StoryCorps meets Antiques Roadshow) – and your family story could be included.
Interviews will take 15-30 minutes.
More information on signing up for an interview coming soon!
This event is free and open to the public; admission to MuseumLab not required.
About Family Pictures USA:
Family Pictures USA is a nationally broadcast PBS documentary-style series, which was broadcast to over 5.3 million viewers in 2019. It journeys through a rapidly changing landscape where the foundations of a familiar and idealized “AMERICA” are being transformed. Through sharing family photographs, ordinary Americans discover their hidden family histories, and meet unknown relatives and old family friends — introducing us to a more nuanced and diverse story of our common history, shared present and evolving future. Family Pictures USA mines this rich treasure trove of personal narratives and reveals roots, connections, and provocative parallels that surprise us and illuminate the path toward a new America for the 21st Century.
