The Art on the Walls program was made for emerging and mid-career visual artists looking to display and sell their art, gain exposure, and develop clientele.
Do you want to get involved in the Art on the Walls program? Our clients select the featured artists who are members of the Arts Council. Membership for artists is completely free!
Visual artists living or working in Southwestern Pennsylvania and are members of the Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council are eligible. Artists must provide work samples created within the past five years. Artwork must be appropriate for the general public. We encourage art to be selected into collections.
Each Art on the Walls client location creates its own art selection committee to review artists in the program. Once a committee makes its selections, they will visit with the artist to view the work in person. Each committee is different in its style, vision, exhibition space, etc. Our Art on the Walls client manager works closely with the client and the artists to develop and install the exhibition.
