Artsburgh for All Arts INFO

Pittsburgh Glass Center is excited to be a part of a group of museums and cultural institutions from across Southwestern Pennsylvania that is collaboratively preparing our organizations for safe re-openings. The group has partnered with the Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council to launch an expanded version of Artsburgh.org, the Arts Council's major events website to promote arts and culture in the area. Artsburgh will now host direct links to organizations' digital programming and information regarding an organization’s re-opening procedures. Check out information from PGC, as well as numerous other organizations across the region!

what does it mean to be green?

Green doesn't mean step on the gas. It is the third in a 3-phase plan created by the Governor to reopen Pennsylvania. PGC is slowly beginning to reopen with limitations. It's not easy being green or a glass studio. We can't wait to see you.
