Building a Local Art Collection? Our Favorite Reason to Celebrate!

CDCP recently had the pleasure of working with Mr. Bill Benter to fill his new offices with artworks. We are thrilled to have placed nearly 70 artworks by 19 contemporary Pittsburgh-based artists in Mr. Benter's downtown space.

Thank you to Bill Benter for his commitment to supporting the Pittsburgh Arts economy - and of course to the Pittsburgh artists for creating a breadth of works that give us all reason to celebrate!

The CSA PGH Small Mall successfully connected attendees of the September 22nd Cultural Trust Gallery Crawl with a variety of local artists that we are proud to feature in the CSA PGH programming - and a few new friends! #Gallerycrawl-ers bought unique artworks, snacked on tasty treats from our food trucks (@thepickledchefcompany & @lapalapapgh), and enjoyed opportunities for art experiences from Angela Love’s ‘Almost Polite’ caricatures and The Nose Exchange by Edith Abeyta to the #montageanimal Selfie Booth by Barbara Weissberger and Aaron Henderson.
