WHY THE ARTS?

PITTARTSLOGO_zps8e87b4da

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.

PITT ARTS is here to support Pitt students as they develop their excellence and their intellectual and leadership skills. We believe that students become more well-rounded persons and invested citizens through their exposure to the fine arts.
