Projects, Programs & Initiatives

PA+CD promotes quality design and the inclusion of art and arts programming in City-owned property to create a sense of place-making and reflect the Pittsburgh's history, diversity, and culture. One of the main functions of the Public Art and Civic Design Division is the development of arts programs and initiatives, including new commissions of public art.

The programs and initiatives implemented by PA+CD have given opportunities to emerging and established artists, protected and revitalized the City’s collection of artwork, and empowered citizens to engage more fully with the cultural history of Pittsburgh’s public art. Below are a few examples of PA+CD projects from just the last few years.
