Event Details

Tickets will be available here soon!

This year’s event will be a testament to TMC’s broad outreach and 49-year(!) history as Pittsburgh’s center for peace and justice-- featuring a pop-up museum and silent art auction along with live performances and speakers.

 

The event is designed to include everyone- by providing wheelchair-accessible, in-person and virtual viewings; multimedia and interactive presentations and performances; extended opening times to socialize with our dear friends who we’ve missed this past year; and spaces to educate and honor our guests. 

Light snacks and alcohol will be available.
