The Office of Public Art Needs Your Support!

For more than two years, the Office of Public Art has served individual artists in the Pittsburgh region with the Artist Opportunities Listserv and the Pittsburgh Artist Registry. As you know, these amazing tools connect artists to new audiences with a website and links to local and national opportunities.

Although there is no cost for artists to use these services, they are not free. The Office of Public Art pays for server space, staff time, and web hosting for a total of $10,845 per year. Our goal is to keep providing these services at no cost to artists, but to keep going, we need your help!

If you have benefited from these services, and are able to give, please consider a tax-deductible donation in any amount.

Thanks for your consideration!


The Pittsburgh Art Blog

The Pittsburgh Art Blog features selected pittsburgh artists and upcoming exhibits with photos from the artists and galleries. since the major press outlets do not go beyond a directory listing of exhibits, blogs are needed to promote pittsburgh artists and their work. the blog also calls attention to the inferiority complex of pittsburgh art and how it's perpetuated by the major players in town. Started on August 20, 2007.pittsburgh area galleries and art venues are listed at the sister site www.PghGalleries.com.the blog and website are volunteer projects from fine art photographer and pittsburgh art advocate rick byerly, www.RickByerly.com.
