Pittsburgh Art: Classic to Cutting Edge

See what makes Pittsburgh a city for the arts that is not to be missed. In Pittsburgh artists, you'll find a unique mix of authenticity, diversity, and hardiness. The environment and history of the Pittsburgh region provides a setting that allows for creative expression unlike that of other regions. 

When you come to Pittsburgh, you can dive deep into the roots of famous artists like Andy Warhol, Teenie Harris and August Wilson. Pittsburgh is home to the Andy Warhol Museum, one of the most comprehensive single-artist museums in the world and the largest in North America. Visit the Carnegie Museum of Art, and explore the Teenie Harris photography archives. Enjoy programming at the August Wilson African American Cultural Center, where the artist's legacy is honored.

Today, Pittsburgh artists have been recognized on the world-stage, and taken visual, contemporary, and performance art to the next level. At the Mattress Factory on Pittsburgh's North Side, you'll find transcendent installations, both permanent and rotating. Catch an unconventional performance with Quantum Theatre or Bricolage Production Company. While in town, stay on the lookout for unique street art, public art, and murals as well.
