Pittsburgh Glass Center offers several residency tracks providing direct support which may include a stipend, travel expenses and accommodations for artists to practice or discover glassmaking, create new work or develop work for an exhibition at PGC or elsewhere.

These programs enrich the experience of the artists they serve as well as the audiences of the Pittsburgh Glass Center.  Tours, from school groups to community outreach programs, come to PGC to learn more about the history of glass in Pittsburgh, the American studio glass movement and individual artists’ work.  The exhibitions that result from our residency programs as well as the residencies themselves serve as a springboard for these conversations with our students, renters and visitors.

PGC offers free public events that our resident artists participate in such as lectures, workshops and our monthly “Hot Jams.”  In addition, there are opportunities for resident artists to work with both our high school and college students to help them develop a greater understanding of the process that artists go through to create a new body of work.
