Art Group Hopes to Highlight City's Art Scene

After the G20 was announced a coalition of arts groups called Pittsburgh Is Art formed to try and find ways to get visitors to share in the city's art scene. The group has four messages that it wants delegates and media to see. Art transforms Pittsburgh, Art employs Pittsburgh, Art "greens" Pittsburgh, and Art inspires Pittsburgh. The group is concerned that traffic restrictions will affect the ability of delegates and media to see many of the city's fine arts establishments so they are considering making shuttles available. The group wants visitors to see how art has helped to change Pittsburgh and how it continues to have an impact on the city.
