ARENA: REMEMBERING THE IGLOO
Photographs by David Aschkenas
Text by Abby Mendelson
Design by Ken Lawton

This brilliantly composed book contains more than 100 photographs by award-winning photographer David Aschkenas documenting the last months of Pittsburgh's Civic Arena and its subsequent demolition. Given unprecedented access to the building and environs, Aschkenas painstakingly recorded the entire year-long process. To complement the extraordinary images, award-winning writer Abby Mendelson skillfully selected and edited a spectrum of memories from Arena patrons, performers, and athletes, including former Penguin Pierre Larouche and musicians Joe Grushecky and Billy Price. A powerful introduction to the book authored by Mendelson tells the Arena's fascinating history. Designer Ken Lawton has fashioned this memorable material into a unique and moving project for all to experience and keep as a memento of an era gone by.
