The Pittsburgh Center for the Arts is a non-profit, way above average, community arts center. Represented are over 200 regional artists who work in fibers, print, ceramics, glass, jewelry, sculpture and more... Guaranteed you will find gifts here not available in the big malls!

Went to an art showing at the Center. Lovely place to host an event and a great place to see art on display. The surrounding grounds were also nice.

On a recent visit to Shadyside district of Pittsburgh, we visited this center. The adjacent gardens were showing the beauty of Spring. The Center shows installation art of some artists, but the exhibits change periodically. There were programs with speakers, educational seminars. I found the gift shop to be more interesting than most museum gift shops.

Decided to stop and see some local artists' work. The exhibitions were so interesting and very well presented? A great place to spend an hour or so and discover some new talent. Wonderful gift shop with works of local artists. Will return for any new exhibits.

We liked it all. Beautiful gardens, lovely reception tent, elegance with art. What is there to NOT like? nothing! We loved this setting, the food was excellent and not over abundant. It was just perfect for our friend's wedding. How gorgeous the gardens were with fragrance wafting in the air as vows were exchanged. Honestly, it's a slice of heaven... More

If you like modern art--this is the place for you. It has some really out there works that change every couple of months. You can also book this place for weddings or private parties. It is easy to find--straight out of Downtown Pittsburgh in the Shadyside area of Fifth Ave, and the building is bright yellow. They have a gift... More

I attended a wedding here, and it was absolutely beautiful! The grounds are gorgeous, especially the terrace where we had dinner. They didn't leave many larger pieces around during the party, but what art there was in the gallery was fun and definitely added to the experience. Just be aware, the only bathrooms are downstairs. That got tricky in heels... More

Our family loves the various classes offered at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. I recently enjoyed a ceramics class using a potter's wheel. There are activities for all ages including animation for kindergardeners. A wonderful time to be had by all.

This is a small gallery, has a few constantly rotating exhibits. I would suggest going online to see what they have available before you go. There is a small amount of metered parking behind the building. There is a suggested donation of 10 dollars. The best part is the shop. They have all kinds of hand crafted items from local... More
