Local photographer David Aschkenas’s exhibition presents a visual record of Pittsburgh’s Civic Arena’s last months in operation and during its yearlong demolition process. The only photographer licensed by the Sports and Exhibition Authority to have total access to the Civic Arena during its demolition, Aschkenas shot more than 10,000 photographs of the project. From wide-angle shots showing the pre-demolition Civic Arena among its surroundings, to close-up images of the seemingly mundane objects within, the photographs on display fully portray the iconic building during it demise.
