Inclusivity and expansiveness are reflected in the lineup announced Monday for the Dollar Bank Three Rivers Arts Festival. The 59th summer fest, which runs June 1-10, will be held in Point State Park, Gateway Center and the Cultural District, Downtown.

The festival remains one of very few in the country that is free, providing access to all communities and income levels. Its Artist Market, Giant Eagle Creativity Zone and Acoustic Stage performances include outreach designed to provide something for a variety of ages, groups and tastes.

Festival Support Grants, another means of outreach, have been awarded for the first time to artists who wished to participate in the festival. The resultant works, in various performative and other media, will be shown throughout the festival. One is “Single Mom Defined,” photographs and videos by Heather Hopson designed to empower single mothers. Other participants include Brandon-Ahmauri McClendon, LoRen and Water Seed.
