We build Pittsburgh’s creative infrastructure by operating a magical  SHOP where artists, teachers, and everyone else can get materials they need for their projects, and by offering hands-on creative PROGRAMS, both at our center and around the region.

Our shop will be closed on Thanksgiving Day (11/26) and Buy Nothing Day (11/27).
We will be spending time with friends and family and enjoying a little breather before the rush of the winter season takes over. We wish you all a lovely holiday and a relaxed day off. Remember, the spending and the door-busting and consumerism of “Black Friday” are not mandatory. Create your own day-after-Thanksgiving tradition! Together, we can work to change the mindset that new is best and more is better. Join us in a day off with yourself, your pets, your loved ones, your family, your friends – and create something magical out of what you already have! We’ll be sharing our alternative “Black Friday” creations on Facebook and Instagram.

Call for Artists

We are looking for one Pittsburgh artist working in any visual discipline that can utilize reclaimed materials and highlight creative reuse in a three month long residency. The artist will be awarded a $600 stipend and free materials from the Creative Reuse shop in order to complete their proposed artwork. The selected artist will hold one demonstration day and host one workshop, and their work will be installed in the new Creative Reuse gallery from March 2016 – April 2016.
