Pittsburgh is Art is a collaboration of local arts organizations that have gathered to develop a collective voice, to share with Pittsburgh and its visitors about the arts impact on the transformation of Pittsburgh, the role the cultural community plays in the economic vitality of the region, and by showcasing the superior cultural activity in Western Pennsylvania.
Pittsburgh is art is most active for specific community initiatives. It was launched in 2009 for the G20 Summit, hosted in Pittsburgh by President Obama, and it garnered significant visibility for the local arts community. It was used in 2011 for the Pittsburgh is Art Day of Giving, a 24-hour fundraising campaign led by GPAC that raised $1.9 million for local arts organizations.
What are the key messages?
Messages grow and change with each campaign, but the general messages are that Art Transforms Pittsburgh, Art Employs Pittsburgh, Art Greens Pittsburgh, and Art Inspires Pittsburgh. Read more on the Pittsburgh is Art Website.
What's going on with Pittsburgh is Art right now?
Though the logos and messaging are always available for use by arts organizations, the Pittsburgh is Art website and blog are most active around specific, community-wide initiatives like the 2009 G20 Summit and the 2011 Pittsburgh is Art Day of Giving. Just because it's quiet at the moment doesn't mean it's not poised for use as necessary!
