The first online installment of Art All Night Pittsburgh will be held from 4 p.m. Saturday, May 16th to 2 p.m. Sunday, May 17th.
Like the traditional annual event this online art show will be provided free for 22-hours to Pittsburghers and beyond. Both Art All Night admission and artist participation are free and open to the public via the event website, www.artallnight.org.
Art All Night features original artwork, activities for children and adults, and entertainment. Throughout the night, guests can participate in collaborative art activities and enjoy performances by local bands and performers. Attendees can support artists through the bidding of art displayed in the show as well as through a donation to the Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council Emergency Fund for Artists. Bids and donations can be made during the show at artallnight.org.
