Arts & Culture

Pittsburgh International Airport’s Art in the Airport program is dedicated to showcasing a dynamic array of work produced by local, regional, national, and international artists. The program is part of the airport’s commitment to creating a sense of place by connecting to the region it serves through offerings unique to Pittsburgh, including art, culture, cuisine, individuals and institutions.

 

                  Student Art Exhibit Finalists 

           

 

Pittsburgh International Airport is happy to launch our first Student Art Exhibit, featuring work from youth 6-18 years of age.  Students were asked to submit original artwork in response of the theme “Nobody Owns the Sky,” the title of a children’s book about Bessie Coleman, who became the first African-American licensed aviator in 1921.

The submissions were judged by members of the Art in the Airport Advisory Committee and staff at PIT.  Those winning artworks are now displayed throughout the airport and on its website, FlyPittsburgh.com and the students will go through a virtual “masterclass” with Pittsburgh artist, Cheryl Capezzuti.

Apply to Perform at the Airport!

Although a pre-qualified pool of artists has already been selected, the Art in the Airport program is always looking for performing artists. Anyone is welcome to apply, but the program seeks artists who perform original music, or music from traditional genres. We are particularly interested in acoustic musicians or those whose instruments are able to pass through a TSA screening port. Applicants who are accepted join a Pre-Qualified Performing Arts Roster. Acceptance into the Roster does not guarantee a performance opportunity.

How to Apply

The Performing Arts Program at Pittsburgh International Airport is not currently accepting applications. The next call for performers will be open in Fall 2020
