August Wilson House

August Wilson House Identity & Website

Playwright August Wilson’s boyhood home in Pittsburgh’s Hill District was recently renovated into a creative hub for nurturing black artists and revitalizing the Hill District; the renovation includes a house museum preserving the exact living conditions featured in Wilson’s renowned American Century Cycle plays. The new identity refers to both the culture of the African diaspora and the unassuming framework of the physical structure. We used a Wilson quote— “Claim What Is Yours” —as the governing thought for the new organization. The words resonate with artists, writers, and the community at large, while also speaking to current social justice movements.
