Patterns of Meaning Two Year Anniversary

October 14th marks the second anniversary of Patterns of Meaning's opening exhibition.

Guests experienced a show spanning three floors and a gymnasium in Pittsburgh's Energy Innovation Center. The exhibition included original art created from the work and arrangements of the massive collection.

New Work

While Patterns has since expanded its collection of artists, the first work from this collection was Cory Bonnet's oil paintings, re-using some of the collection and dramatic chandeliers.

The Paintings


Bonnet chose large and small patterns and core boxes as the foundation for his original work, with images reflecting the trade history featured in the art.


The chandeliers were a collaborative effort - designed by Angela Neira, lighting by Andrew Moschetta with Ketra Lighting, and constructed by Nate Lucas using casting patterns from the collection and chain.

The Patterns artistic team continues to create art inspired and reusing this collection.  To keep up with the collection or receive invites to upcoming exhibition, please join our email list below.
