Pittsburgh Artists: Apply for $3,000 for Your Art Project (Allegheny County)

Apply for $3,000 for Your Art Project (Allegheny County)

Saturday, May 14, from 10 am - 11:30 am

Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council, 810 Penn Avenue, Suite 200

Register online or call 412.394.3353

If you'd like to do an art project in your community, you can apply to PA Partners in the Arts for up to $3,000 to make it a reality! Whether you are an individual artist, a neighborhood group or a nonprofit organization, you are eligible to apply.*

Projects can be any genre—visual art, dance, theatre, music—and must be open to the public in Southwestern PA. In short, we're looking for well-planned projects that will bring high quality art to people who might not already have many arts experiences available to them.

At this information session, David Seals will walk you through the application process and give you tips for writing a great application. If you plan to apply, we highly recommend you come to the session, which will help you understand what the decision-making panel might think of your application. We'll also have some refreshments to enjoy while you're there.

To reserve your FREE spot, visit ProArtsTickets online or call 412.394.3353.

*See guidelines for full eligibility. Guidelines will be available in late April 2011.

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 artist advocate rick byerly.
