Art All Night 2013 (post 1 of 3)!

I have just returned to New York after attending one of my absolutely favorite annual art events, Art All Night, which takes place for twenty two hours over the last weekend in April in Pittsburgh's Lawrenceville neighborhood.  I really cannot imagine a more fun, engaging and unpretentious way to celebrate art than Art All Night (you can read many more details about the event either on their website or in this post I wrote last year).

I took lots of photos at this year's event, and I'm just going to split them up into three posts and get them up for you to enjoy, in no particular order.  I hope you all get at least a tiny sense of how wonderful Art All Night is, and if anyone who reads the blog actually attended the event, I would love for you to comment and let me know what you thought of it!

*Note* I am including photos of some artwork that could be considered R-Rated, and so if you're not a fan of the occasional penis or other nudity-related themes, proceed with a little bit of caution! 

*Note #2* As always, forgive the poor quality of some of my photos!
