Visual Arts

Whether you have a taste for traditional art or a thirst for the exotic, Pittsburgh is your art destination. Be astonished by art crafted from flowers and greenery at Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. Or explore the history of work created in southwest Pennsylvania and across the country at the newly expanded Westmoreland Museum of American Art. No matter what your artistic style, Pittsburgh has a museum for you.

Here are just a few highlighted exhibitions and art museums:

Visit the Andy Warhol Museum, global keeper of the pop art icon's legacy. This museum centers on Warhol's struggle with his own body image and fascination with the flawed human form.  A special exhibit Andy Warhol: Stars of the Silver Screen (Jun 16-Sep 24, 2017) explores Warhol's fascination with Hollywood, fame and stardom.

Explore the sprawling former Frick family estate, and enjoy an expansive art collection at The Frick Pittsburgh. Schedule a tour of "Clayton," once home to industrialist Henry Clay Frick, which now serves as one of the best preserved Gilded Age mansions in America. The Frick will also present Undressed: A Brief History of Underwear, October 21, 2017-January 14, 2018. The exhibition is organized by the Victoria and Albert Museum and is traveling internationally from 2014-2017. At this time, the Frick will be the only US venue. This exhibition will look at the history of private and intimate clothing-from corsets to court dress and boudoir wear to bustles.

Venture to the Carnegie Museum of Art from Mar 16-Sep 4, 2017 for the Styles and Customs of the 2020s, a virtual reality experience where artists invite us to consider how a re-imagined future can shed light on our present.

Continue your connection to art on the stage with one-of-a-kind performances by hundreds of arts groups in the region. Also, explore Pittsburgh Art Places, a comprehensive resource for finding public art and arts venues in the Pittsburgh region.
