The Pittsburgh Glass Center

August 22, 2012


The Artist as Catalyst residency attracts innovation to Pittsburgh by supporting the work of mid-career glass artists working outside of Pittsburgh.
The Bridge Artist program provides support to artists working outside of the medium of glass, providing an opportunity to explore a new material and create a body of work with the help of a master glass artist.
The Community Artist residency track creates connections between PGC and our communities in order to create situations that bring unconventional audiences to view, discuss and interact with works of art.


The Pittsburgh Glass Center, an open, comprehensive studio and gallery, is dedicated to teaching, creating and promoting glass art to regional, national and international audiences. PGC offers several residency tracks providing direct support which may include a stipend, travel expenses and accommodations for artists to practice or discover glassmaking, create new work or develop work for an exhibition at PGC or elsewhere.

These programs enrich the experience of the artists they serve as well as the audiences of the Pittsburgh Glass Center. Tours, from school groups to community outreach programs, come to PGC to learn more about the history of glass in Pittsburgh, the American studio glass movement and individual artists’ work. The exhibitions that result from our residency programs as well as the residencies themselves serve as a springboard for these conversations with our students, renters and visitors.
