The paintings are being exhibited at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts (PCA) May 15th – August 2015. Click here to find out more information about the exhibition.
In collaboration with the PCA, and he published a book about the project, which is full color, 130 pages, and features all 90 paintings. As his paintings were made locally, Ron wanted to have his book printed in Pittsburgh, not overseas. As Ron said, “It just makes sense to source it locally.” To help make this possible, he create an online crowd-funding campaign where he successfully raised over $20,000 to keep the design and printing in Pittsburgh.
