Artist Opportunities Listserv
March 2011

Over 20 new opportunities have been added to the listserv this month! Check the links below for details.

Of special note:

* GPAC Annual Survey: We are asking everyone to let us know what you, the arts community, needs from the arts council. We use the information to help us set our priorities; the information gathered this year will help us determine our direction in the future. Your participation is crucial! You don't need to be a GPAC member or a Pittsburgh resident to participate. It should take 5-15 minutes to complete. Begin the survey.
* Public Art 101: The Office of Public Art has announced the date for Public Art 101, our annual workshop for artists interested in learning about working in the public realm. Join us on May 7, 2011 from 10-4pm. Presenters include Kendal Henry, public art consultant, New York, NY; Morton Brown, the City of Pittsburgh's public art manager; and Carin Mincemoyer, artist; Pittsburgh, PA. To register, visit ( )

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.

Thank you to Justin Greenfield for his generous donation to support the listserv this month!

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

the blog and website are volunteer projects from fine art photographer and pittsburgh artist advocate rick byerly.
