About the Pittsburgh Artist Registry

Who we are

The Pittsburgh Artist Registry is a project of The Office of Public Art.  The Office of Public Art is a partnership between the Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council and the City of Pittsburgh Department of City Planning with funding provided by The Heinz Endowments. The Pittsburgh Artist Registry was first developed in 2007 with a grant from the National Endowments for the Arts.

What we do

The Pittsburgh Artist Registry is a portal that connects artists in southwestern Pennsylvania with audiences for their work.

Artists, Collectives, Bands, and Companies:

Log in to make a profile.  Your profile will be public, but you can also save lists of your favorite peer artists and favorite artworks in ‘My Collections”.

Visitors, browsers, and curators:

Are you a visitor seeking artists? If you create a profile, you can create a list of your favorite artists.  Your profile will not be visible, and you will be able to save your favorite artists and artworks in a digitally curated gallery using the ‘My Collections’ feature.  You can share this link publicly by sharing the unique  URL for each collection.


This is the perfect place for you to find artists to feature in your venue.  Log in and make a profile to save your favorites using the My Collections feature. The Pittsburgh Artist Registry is only open to artists.  But don’t feel left out.  Pittsburgh Art Places is where you can make a profile for your venue.

How is the registry used?

The registry is used by local artists to find collaborators, curators to find new artists to exhibit, theaters and music venues to find new performers, and art collectors looking for regional artists.  The Office of Public Art uses the registry to share information about local artists with our clients.  Keeping your profile up to date ensures that you will be considered for upcoming public art opportunities.
