Faculty and Staff at the Pittsburgh campus may purchase Cheap Seats and are welcome to see Artful Wednesdays performances via PITT ARTS. We are excited to connect you with the vibrant arts and culture scene of Pittsburgh!



The arts gets us thinking deeply, makes us laugh, causes us to question the world as it is, helps to build a diverse community international awareness, beautifies our world & nurtures our spirits. These are but a few ways that the arts makes our lives that much richer.
