The 56th Carnegie International, scheduled to open at Carnegie Museum of Art in October 2013, will be organized by co-curators Daniel Baumann, Dan Byers, and Tina Kukielski. This is the first time in the International’s history that a curatorial team of three people will lead the exhibition.

Initiated by Andrew Carnegie in 1896 in Pittsburgh, and presented every three to five years at Carnegie Museum of Art, the Carnegie International is among the leading exhibitions of contemporary art worldwide. The International serves to present an American audience, especially that of Western Pennsylvania, with a broad and ambitious survey of the art of our time. With hundreds of works by artists from around the globe-including many commissioned specifically for the show-the 2013 International will be a catalyst for new ways to present, experience, and think about art.

One of the best-kept secrets in the Northeast, Split Rock Resort is a 27-hole resort course with much to offer. Its majestic 585-yard 11th hole claims one of the most spectacular views in the entire Northeast. Championship black to ladies red, each starting tees offers a unique view of the fairway. The trees surrounding the course are abundant and positively burst with color in the fall. Split Rock Resort is a thinking man’s course and has to be played with a combination of strategy and power. Ravines, ponds, and bunker-lined fairways, along with the occasional deer or turkey, require the golfer to carefully measure their club choice. Making Split Rock Resort even more inviting are its greens fees, which also include a cart.
