The Green Scene.
When Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens opens its Center for Sustainable Landscapes this year, it will be a "living building," one of the greenest in the world... From the world's first LEED-certified convention center to the first National Hockey League certified gold-LEED arena, CONSOL Energy Center, Pittsburgh continues to raise the bar on green and sustainable architecture.
Pittsburgh Is Art.
No question that Pittsburgh's art scene rivals any major city. Two Pittsburgh icons - steel baron Andrew Carnegie and pop artist Andy Warhol - left lasting artistic legacies: Carnegie Museums of Art and Natural History and The Andy Warhol Museum. Public art abounds! Self-guided walking tours of public art and architecture are easy with downloadable guides.
It's Show Time!
Downtown's vibrant 14-block Cultural District is home to the highest concentration of performing arts venues between New York City and Chicago. Beautifully restored performance halls and contemporary spaces are home to the world-renowned Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre, Pittsburgh Dance Council, PNC Broadway Across America, Pittsburgh Public Theater, Pittsburgh CLO and more. In fact, the Cultural District's seven major theaters offer more than 2,000 shows each year.
