Landmarks Housing Resource Center will have an open house, art gallery exhibition and discussion featuring artist James Shipman, who will give a detailed presentation of his work, discussing the role of the artist in society in the context of community development and Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation's work in the Hamnett Place neighborhood of Wilkinsburg.
