Industrial Arts Workshop

It is the mission of the Industrial Arts Workshop to inspire artistic literacy in the city of Pittsburgh and beyond by offering enrichment opportunities that advance the understanding and process of sculpture-making artists and their work. IAW does this by creating original works of sculpture, promoting artistic literacy, inspiring, and supporting sculpture artists and through collaboration, accessible education programs, projects, and outreach. For five summers, IAW's pilot program, mobile sculpture workshop, brought together 50 Pittsburgh youths with a shared passion for welding, creative expression, and collaboration of their work.
