Historic Steel Mill Artifacts & Contemporary Artwork
In June 2021, Pittsburgh oil painter, preservationist Cory Bonnet and scrap metal recycler, Steel Museum owner Chip Barletto, acquired an enormous collection of late 1800 early 1900 wood casting patterns and blue prints. So far, ten 26’ trucks worth have been moved to Bonnet’s Pittsburgh studio located 1/2 mile from the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in the Energy Innovation Center
1435 Bedford Ave.
PGH, PA 15219
Patterns of Meaning is dedicated to the preservation/restoration and continued exhibition of these artifacts, paintings and sculptures to honor the innovation and sacrifice made by the workers and industries that built the U.S. and the world.
Our hope is to rekindle a sense of gratitude for the infrastructure and comfort they afforded us that so many take for granted today.
