ARTS AND CULTURE
We seek to strengthen small-to-mid-sized arts organizations and support individual artists by fostering a diverse, healthy and just arts ecosystem.
The Pittsburgh Foundation believes in the transformational power of art and in the talent and strength of Pittsburgh-based artists and organizations. Funding aims to create opportunities for artists and organizations to practice their craft, pursue new ideas, produce thought-provoking work, celebrate the totality of the experience of the artist, and encourage cultural exchange through shared artistic experiences. We support endeavors to amplify voices, share narratives and provide more equitable funding throughout the art and culture landscape.
