Sponsored by The Heinz Endowments and The Pittsburgh Foundation, Investing in Professional Artists: The Pittsburgh Region Artists Program is guided by a shared belief in artistic excellence, creative development, and the need for continuous career advancement. Professional artists’ self-directed pursuit of new ideas, opportunities, and skills are essential to the region’s cultural vitality. This program provides resources to professional artists for the breadth of the creative process, from concept to completion. While the program does not require presentation of a fully realized work, it challenges artists to seek to produce the artworks that will define our times, our region, and our lives.
- To support the creative development of professional artists in the region
- To create career advancement and recognition opportunities
- To incentivize creative partnerships between artists and local cultural organizations
- To increase the visibility of independent working artists in the region’s cultural life.
