A pair of world premieres, as well as several U.S. premieres, are among the plans for Pittsburgh Cultural Trust’s Distinctively Dutch Festival, set to begin Feb. 18.

In all, 18 events will take place during the four-month festival of art and cultural exhibits and performances, which Gabri Christa hopes will make Pittsburghers more aware of the richness of the contemporary Dutch art world.
