Single Mom Defined by Heather Hopson
Advancing Black Arts in Pittsburgh Grantee
 
 
Single Mom Defined, a photo essay and video series, provides a much more accurate definition about single Black motherhood than the one society presents. Often, when single Black mothers are discussed or Googled, they are crammed into the same stereotypical storyline when in fact they each took different paths to parenthood. The interactive exhibit introduces visitors of all ages to positive images of 50+ mothers in the Pittsburgh region. It aims to change negative search results and combat cultural bias.

The artist, Heather Hopson, encourages all to celebrate motherhood and elevate the voices of African-American moms, who are often left out of conversations about raising America!

It's an interactive installation, with hands-on activities for all ages.

Advancing Black Arts in Pittsburgh

The Pittsburgh Foundation and The Heinz Endowments are committed to supporting a vibrant cultural life in the region that reflects diverse cultural offerings that appeal to the widest array of the region’s citizens. This nationally recognized grant opportunity is designed to help build careers and support the lives of artists; bolster community awareness of the rich history and current presence of excellent black arts presentation and production; increase professional network opportunities between artists and the Festival; alleviate prohibitive social and economic barriers for artists who otherwise meet Festival requirements; and produce quality art projects to enhance the Festival experience for all. This year, several artists were awarded Festival Support Grants and will appear throughout the Festival—in the Artist Market, on stages, and with art installations and exhibitions.
