With more than $63,000 in art sales, the Art on the Walls exhibition program brings the work of our artist members to unconventional spaces throughout the Greater Pittsburgh region.
Art on the Walls is a different kind of exhibition program.
For many emerging and mid-career visual artists, it’s difficult to break into gallery spaces. Not to mention the high gallery fees charged if a piece is sold. Art on the Walls was created to break down those barriers. Art on the Walls provides an opportunity for artists to display their work, connects businesses to the arts, and provides exposure and income for artists.
All Art on the Walls exhibition work is available to purchase. Art is exhibited in corporate, business, and other spaces encouraging visitors, patrons, employees, and the business owners to purchase artwork for their collections.
As one of our longest standing clients, the Allegheny Conference on Community Development transformed its work and meeting environment with the works of more than 30 regional artists since 2013.
Owned by Chicago-based Real Estate Management company M & J Wilkow, LTD, the exhibition at Eleven Stanwix features two exhibitions annually, highlighting new local artists within each exhibition. Each presentation is displayed for approximately six months on kiosks and pedestals within the lobby, so you have plenty of time to check it out.
The importance and legacy of the arts in Pittsburgh is an undeniable truth. From 2014 to 2022, city citizens to world leaders visited the mayors’ offices and saw our region's strong diversity shared through the local artist's art on the walls of the highest public office. The proud exhibition team of GPAC and Associated Artists of Pittsburgh continued to provide the art choices and exhibits on display.
The exhibition depicted the people, places, and feelings that make Pittsburgh special, interpreting Pittsburgh's past 200 years through diverse artistic lenses.
As the city's official tourism promotion agency, VisitPITTSBURGH values the dynamic influence the arts and culture scene has on Pittsburgh as a destination. In the words of VisitPITTSBURGH: We chose art that tells the Pittsburgh story, and take pride in the opportunity to share this with our staff, visitors, and clients. The VisitPITTSBURGH Art on the Walls collection is currently on hiatus, but you can still view the most recently featured artists, and their work, below.
