Stealing the Spotlight


Pittsburgh isn't shy about celebrating the work of its legendary artists at institutions like the Andy Warhol Museum and the August Wilson Center for African American Culture. And with more than 1,000 arts and cultural organizations, world-class performing and visual arts venues, and a prolific filmmaking industry, the city is adding to its legacy of artistic excellence each day – and fostering a new generation of artists and arts patrons in the process.
