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.

With your help, we surpassed our goal and WE GOT A VAN!!! This was a combined effort by our loyal customers, volunteers, and supporters, an anonymous angel donor, and an extra boost from the McKinney Charitable Foundation of the PNC Charitable Trusts.  The folks at Northside Imports helped us find the perfect vehicle within our budget.  We’re calling her “Fancy, the Robot ReuseMobile.”  We cannot begin to say what a huge boost this is for our organization.  This van will help us to rescue more awesome materials before they are sent to landfills, and we’ll use it to travel to programs where we will reach thousands of Pittsburgh kids and families this summer with our message about how reuse can help us all build a more sustainable, beautiful, and creative world. THANK YOU!

The shop will be closed on Monday, May 25th in of observance Memorial Day.
