Hey! So you want to volunteer! That’s great! We can’t wait to have you!
There are 2 main ways to volunteer – On the “Planning Committee” and as a “Show Volunteer”.
If you some extra time on your hands and you want to have a say in how Art All Night goes, you can volunteer on the “Planning Committee.” It requires a commitment to be at (most) Wednesday evening meetings from the end of January through Art All Night (held the last weekend in April), to help at Art All Night, to manage things and people and to have a creative mind. The rewards are great working as part of this committee.
If this sounds like it may be for you, here is a list of the committee teams and what “captains” on this team do.
If you cannot commit to that level, but still want to be a part of the team that has Art All Night be awesomely successful, you can volunteer for as many 2 hour shifts as you like in any of the teams/jobs listed here.
When is it held?
The show is typically held during the last full (Sat/Sun) weekend in April. The official dates will be posted on our Home page when everything has been finalized.
Where is it held?
Typically somewhere in the Lawrenceville neighborhood of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The address will be on our Home page once a location is selected, and there will be maps on our Directions page to help you find your way to us as well.
In an effort to showcase the diversity of Lawrenceville the location changes each year. As the event has grown, we seek spaces of 20,000 sq. feet or more. In January the building committee identifies potential sites and works with the property owners to determine the actual location.
If you have a building and would be interested in hosting the show, please let us know via our contact page.
Who puts on Art All Night?
Art All Night is planned and coordinated by an all-volunteer organizing committee that starts meeting at the end of January. Dozens of additional volunteers help in the final stages to prepare the venue, construct exhibit panels, assist with the registration and hanging of artwork, provide refreshments, direct traffic, clean-up, and much, much more. Live entertainment throughout the event is also donated by some of Pittsburgh’s finest performers.
The work of community volunteers is generously supported each year by a range of generous sponsors and donors. Art All Night is also supported by the strictly voluntary contributions of attendees, which support continuation of the event each year.
