  • CMOA Collects Edward Hopper: CMOA Collects Edward Hopper presents all 17 works by Hopper in the museum’s collection, ranging from impressive examples of his etchings, drawings, and watercolors, to the oil paintings for which he is best known.
  • Teenie Harris Photographs: Cars: Presents 25 photographs selected from Carnegie Museum of Art’s Teenie Harris Archive, which contains well over 2,000 images of automobiles from the 1930s to 1970s. The exhibition emphasizes not only the beauty and elegance of these iconic cars—Cadillacs, Dusenbergs, Hudsons, and Buicks—but also the roles that they played in Pittsburgh’s segregated African American communities.

  • Hot Metal Modern: Design in Pittsburgh and Beyond: This installation reveals the significant contributions of Pittsburgh-based designers and manufacturers in the development of 20th-century modernism.
  • HACLab Pittsburgh: Imagining the Modern: Using archival photography, drawings, and ephemera, this experimental presentation contextualizes the arrival of modern architecture in Pittsburgh during the 1950s and 1960s, a period of rapid change through urban renewal. And, it demonstrates how other cities held up Pittsburgh as an example of progressive urbanism.

  • Out of This World! Jewelry in the Space Age: This exhibit brings together scientific fact and pop culture in a showcase of wearable and decorative arts related to outer space, space travel, the space age, and the powerful influence these topics have had on human civilization. Beginning with jewelry and artifacts memorializing the appearance of Halley’s Comet in 1835, Out of this World! travels forward through time to explore nearly 200 objects from landmark moments in space-related history.

  • Animal Secrets: Where does a chipmunk sleep? What does an eagle feed its young? How do mother bats find their babies in a cave? In Animal Secrets, visitors to Carnegie Museum of Natural History will learn the answers to these questions and more as they explore the hidden habitats and secret lives of forest animals. Using imaginative role-play and hands-on activities, children will discover nature from an animal’s point of view in naturalistic environments, including a stream, meadow, woodland, cave, and naturalists’ tent.
