"...Alexander Hamilton had a torrid affair, and he wrote it down right there! Highlights..."
If you haven't heard of Alexander Hamilton, one of our founding fathers, don't consult your history book. Instead, just look to the dynamic art scene here in Pittsburgh. The Broadway play created by Lin-Manuel Miranda first debuted in February of 2015 and since then it has taken off like a rock! So its not a surprise that Pittsburgh would be a natural fit for the traveling production of Hamilton to a make stop at. The production of Hamilton will be here in Pittsburgh for the entire month of January, ending on January 27th.
While Pittsburgh is going crazy for Alexander Hamiltonian in 2019, that wasn't the case the last time that he was here in Pittsburgh. Back in 1794 when Hamilton visited Pittsburgh after lobbing in 1790 for a tax on whisky local farmers where ready to tar and feather him, just as they had done to many of the local tax collectors. While Pittsburgh-ians might still take their whisky seriously, they also take the art community extremely seriously as well!
Enter, from stage left, the reason why you are reading a self storage blog talking about a musical phenomena. Understanding the emerging art scene transition that started to develop about a decade or so ago, the President of STORExpress knew that there was a demand for a place to create art, outside of the cramped downtown apartments, and created just that with the newly re-branded 412 Studios, currently in Etna PA. The 412 Studios spaces have been extensively thought out to offer natural light sources in every space, with all amenities (quarterly art shows events, Industrial sink for brush cleaning, lounge area with couches and TV, Etc.) and utilities (Electric, AC/Heat, WiFi, etc.) included. These studio spaces have became a haven for local arts to network with other artist in addition to expressing their creative passions.
