Bold, creative, powerful and compassionate, SUNSTARS are bright like their namesake. This year’s SUNSTAR is a celebration of the many dynamic, unstoppable women and femmes who build community through creative and artistic endeavors that unite us all and create opportunity for others.

Schedule of Events:

Friday, March 3 | Rise & Shine - A Breakfast with Sunstars
The 9th annual SUNSTAR kicks off with an energizing and uplifting breakast roundtable discussion at the Ace Hotel Pittsburgh. 

Friday, March 3 | Lori Hepner & Kendra Ross - Intersection*ology
Working at the intersection of art, gender and technology, artists Lori Hepnerand Kendra Ross utilize light, sound, movement and image to situate memories of the feminine past into today’s corporeality. This work-in-progress performance inserts sonic and image based queries to process women’s pasts, creating future technological landscapes of digital information. Intersection*ology explores, adapts, morphs, rejoices and revolts in the many ways women are perceived.

Fresh Works is KST’s month-long creative learning program for Pittsburgh-based artists. The program provides artists with production support, lighting and sound design, and 80 hours at The Alloy Studios to research, explore, play, and finally share a work-in-progress performance. Fresh Works debuted in 2013 and, so far, this residency incubator has benefited seven lead artists.
