Community Comes Together for Free 22-Hour Art Event

The 21st installment of Art All Night Pittsburgh will be held from 4 p.m. Saturday, April 28th to 2p.m. Sunday, April 29th.

The 21st annual Art All Night features original artwork, activities for children and adults, an art auction, and live entertainment. Throughout the night, guests can participate in collaborative art activities and enjoy performances by local bands and performers. On-site artists will collaborate to create works of art, and a live art auction held at noon on Sunday, April 29th will give guests a chance to bid on the artwork. Art All Night merchandise is also available for purchase. All proceeds directly support future Art All Nights.
