Goldmine is beyond overjoyed and delighted to present, A Special Kind of Fall: New Installations by Paul Louis Nelson. This is Nelson's first solo exhibition in Pittsburgh and Goldmine's first show of installations! We don't want to spoil the surprise, but there'z gonna be balloons and leaves everywhere. 

Nelson is based in Seattle, WA and uses photography, sculpture, painting, bookmaking, and installation to explore pop culture, the value of creative labour, the meaning of love and beauty, and the early works of American treasure, Tom Hanks. Trust us, you really really want to see this.
