PITTSBURGH, PA (May 22, 2017) Mayor William Peduto will formally welcome ambassadors from across the globe at an event this evening at the Andy Warhol Museum.

The Office of the Chief of Protocol is leading the State Department's latest Experience America trip to the city, which started Sunday and continues through tomorrow.
More than 30 foreign ambassadors are in Pittsburgh meeting with business and community leaders, and learning about the city.
