Presenting contemporary art in craft media by regional, national, and international artists since 1971, Contemporary Craft (CC) offers cutting edge exhibitions focusing on multicultural diversity and non-mainstream art, a range of studio workshops, community programs, and a retail store.
Through its mission of engaging the public in creative experiences through contemporary craft, CC offers meaningful art opportunities for more than 135,000 people a year through four core values: providing vital support for artists; filling critical gaps in public education; sharing cross cultural perspectives; and using art to build community.
CC is located at 5645 Butler Street in Pittsburgh’s Lawrenceville neighborhood. Hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 10 am to 4 pm. The satellite gallery is located in the “T” station lobby of BNY Mellon Center in downtown Pittsburgh, and is open daily from 6 am through midnight. Exhibitions and informal, hands-on art activities in the Drop-In Studio are always free to the public. For more information, visit www.contemporarycraft.org or call 412.261.7003.
