Welcome to Tools & Resources, the "Do-It-Yourself" section of our website. Here's what you'll find:
Hang artwork at local businesses
The Art on the Walls program places the work of local artists literally "on the walls" at the GPAC office, as well as at other corporations and businesses around the city.
Find paid opportunities and more for visual artists
Subscribe to the Artist Opportunities Listserv, a monthly email for artists that lists calls for artists, exhibition opportunities, professional development, and more. A great way to find work and grow your skills.
Customize your inbox
We've designed many different email lists, so you can subscribe only to the information you want. Just enter your email address and check the boxes for the one you want to receive.
Promote your events
Post your events (exhibitions, readings, performances...) on our free Arts Pittsburgh Events Listing, which draws nearly a million website visits each year.
Find insurance, discounts, and more
Whether you need liability insurance, health insurance, discounted art supplies, payroll service, and more, be sure to check out the products and discounts we've negotiated on behalf or our members.
Make yourself known (create a free, online artist profile)
Whether you are a visual, performing, or literary artist, put yourself in the mix by creating a free profile on the Pittsburgh Artist Registry, a public directory of 1,300+ artists from western PA.
Learn about your audiences and trade mailing lists with others
GPAC gives you the power of a larger research firm via the Pittsburgh Arts Community Database. Upload the addresses of your patrons, and you'll get access to over 200 demographic details, from the number of children in each household to the magazines they read and more! Also, easily submit requests to trade mailing lists with other groups who use the system.
Sell your tickets
ProArtsTickets helps small and mid-sized arts organizations build audiences through a robust ticketing service and marketing capabilities, including an extensive database designed to easily facilitate direct marketing campaigns.
Promote your discounted tickets (and other stuff)
Do you have empty seats to fill or artwork you're trying to move through your doors? Show some love to your peers who work in the arts! If you have a discount offer for the arts community, we'll send it out in our Member Discount Email that goes out each Thursday exclusively to GPAC members. Fill your seats with people who are on your side.
We're constantly updating our Resource Directory as we discover helpful information about finance, marketing, legal issues, strategic planning, and more. Check back often.
Learn about the arts industry
GPAC is a student of the industry, and our Research Page lists local and national research about the arts and other nonprofit industries, so that you can stay up on the latest information about the field.
Book a meeting at our place
The Big Room at GPAC is an affordable and attractive meeting space that accommodates up to 75 people. It is handicap accessible and includes bathrooms, multimedia equipment and limited use of a kitchen.
