Free Arts Encounters: For Pitt Oakland Undergraduate Students


Undergraduates have the unique opportunity to attend our Free Arts Encounters programs. PITT ARTS brings registered, full-time, Oakland campus undergraduate students to 85 Arts Encounters a year. This includes trips to the symphony, opera, ballet, films, concerts, galleries, and the theater. We provide transportation 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 need to opt in to receive our weekly Arts newsletter to their Pitt email every Monday in which upcoming Free Arts Encounters are described in detail.
