When is a fence not just a fence? When it is a WORK OF ART! As part of the Public Art Master Plan for the New Pittsburgh Arena, the Sports and Exhibition Authority will commission three community organizations and three artists to work together to develop temporary works of art for the construction fence on three sides of the arena. Stipends available for participating organizations and artists.

Artist Information Session:
The Office of Public Art is working with art consultants Christine Bethea and Brenda Brown of Passports Art Diversity Project to host two artist information sessions. The purpose of the meetings is to give potential applicants the opportunity to discuss the project, discuss the application process, and ask questions. It is recommended, but not required, that applicants attend a session.
