Connie Cantor is a Pittsburgh based artist with a long interest in urban and neighborhood issues. An avid preservationist, she also rehabilitates small houses as live/work space for artists and other "creatives" drawn to Pittsburgh's affordability and quality of life. Cantor, a 4th generation Pittsburgher, believes that integration of young and older populations in distressed neighborhoods can create a radical new paradigm for social-urban discourse.
