Three of Pittsburgh's major nonprofit arts organizations plan to work together in the future.

Pittsburgh's art community should celebrate: its future has just been assured by the unification of its major non-profit arts organizations. Board members of the Pittsburgh Glass Center (PGC), the Pittsburgh Filmmakers, and the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts recently voted to move forward with a collaboration and possible merger. The next 12 to 18 months will determine how the new infrastructure will be set up. For now, the organizations hope that their alliance will provide more comprehensive resources and a wider variety of programs to the community.

The Pittsburgh Glass Center, which opened in 2001, comprises a studio and gallery in a LEED-certified building near an up-and-coming arts district in the city. The organization is dedicated to the promotion of glass art. Internationally-known glass artists and instructors often teach workshops and give free live demonstrations to the public. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Pittsburgh Glass Center.
