About Gallery Crawl in the Cultural District
Since 2004, the Gallery Crawl in the Cultural District, a production of the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, has been a free, one-night-only, multi-venue showcase of Pittsburgh’s dynamic art and entertainment scene. Tens of thousands of visitors have explored this quarterly “open house,” featuring local and international artists in exhibitions, performances, and screenings inside of galleries, storefronts, and restaurants throughout the Cultural District.
This past spring, we offered a new take on the familiar Crawl experience as the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust presented the Gallery Crawl in the Cultural District: Virtual Edition in March, April, and May of 2021.
The Virtual Edition’s “Crawl Stops” are not places in the Cultural District, but moments in time when you are invited to explore exceptional new work from a diverse group of Pittsburgh-based artists and community leaders. Once per month in March, April, and May, we released a new virtual “Crawl Stop,” each offering several vantage points to explore artists’ work. These online gallery exhibitions, behind-the-scenes interviews, and live discussions were designed to offer guests the same sense of discovery that the Gallery Crawl in the Cultural District has offered visitors for nearly two decades — new ideas and perspectives waiting around every corner.
