Free Arts Encounters: For Pitt Oakland Undergraduate Students

Please note, all Free Arts Encounters are virtual for 2020 – 2021 until further notice.

Undergraduates have the unique opportunity to attend our Arts Encounters programs. PITT ARTS brings registered, full-time, Oakland campus undergraduate students to 110 Arts Encounters a year. This includes trips to the symphony, opera, ballet, films, concerts, galleries, and the theater. We provide transportation, a catered reception, and tickets.

Also, there is always a socio-educational component that offers a context for the encounter, such as e-mailed essays, discussions with artists, or hands-on workshops.

Undergraduates are automatically opted in to receive our weekly newsletter to their Pitt email every Monday in which upcoming Arts Encounters are described in detail.

The Hotlist: For graduate students, faculty, and staff

PITT ARTS sends out a Hotlist e-mail every Wednesday that lets you know about upcoming cheap and free arts events going on every week in the city and on campus.
