The world is waking up to Pittsburgh, and the arts are the coffee pot.
In 2012, news stories from National Geographic Traveler, the Huffington Post, Forbes Magazine, and many others have brought to light our city's transformation from the smoky industrial to the artistic and innovative. Almost without exception, these stories mention our arts community.
The home of Andy Warhol and August Wilson, Pittsburgh boasts world-class cultural institutions, risking-taking artists, a growing film industry, and a Cultural District that is recognized internationally as a model of revitalization. This year’s Convention will drop you into the beating heart of our summer scene, where you can peruse the Three Rivers Arts Festival and Pittsburgh Pride, browse downtown galleries, or even catch a Cultural District show—all within walking distance of the hotel.
If you're an artist or arts professional, we invite you to try Pittsburgh this year. We think you'll like what you find: an affordable, thought-provoking place to work amid natural beauty and strong artistic community. If you're already a Pittsburgher, we invite you to join the conversations happening right in your own backyard.
See you in June,
Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council
