Dee Briggs

Pittsburgh Center for Arts & Media

There’s a good chance you’ve seen a sculpture by Dee Briggs, whom the Pittsburgh Center for Arts & Media has named its Artist of the Year.

Briggs is known nationally, but her large-scale abstract works in steel have also appeared locally, in settings including Phipps Conservatory. Her assembly of six thin plates of steel formed into interlocking, wave-like shapes graced Stanwix Plaza for a year, starting during the 2018 Three Rivers Arts Festival.
