Art Galleries to See in Pittsburgh

Madeleine Ray

The art scene in Pittsburgh is a dynamic one. The city is famously the birthplace of Andy Warhol and has countless trendy galleries as well as more distinguished ones to satisfy whatever type of art you are interested in experiencing. Whether you want to get lost in contemporary galleries and immersive exhibits, featuring artists such as Yayoi Kusama, or spend the day learning about art and history, Pittsburgh has you covered. As a native Pittsburgh girl who is also obsessed with art and visiting art galleries, I have found this selection to never miss.

      The first museum to ever collect primarily contemporary art, The Carnegie Museum in Pittsburgh is designed with Carnegie's concept of "incorporating with the plan for a library that of an art gallery in which shall be preserved a record of the progress and development of pictorial art in America." True to this description, the museum houses an expansive collection of fine arts, decorative arts, film, and photography.

      What was once an old mattress factory in downtown Pittsburgh, is not a completely revitalized contemporary art immersion experience. The museum is focused on installations that allow you to interact and truly experience the art. The museum houses work from the world-famous artist Yayoi Kusama and have some rotating exhibitions for artist residencies.
