Pittsburgh is an extraordinary American city. A cornerstone of the Rust Belt economy in the 19th and 20th centuries, Pittsburgh’s steel works, mines, and foundries quite literally built the country. As society shifted, so did the city. Today, Pittsburgh thrives as a hotbed of innovation and creativity, with renowned universities, tech startups and a thriving art scene built on a legacy of manufacturing.
Today, Google Arts & Culture is proud to launch Pittsburgh: Proud and Powerful alongside 15 local institutions to celebrate the city’s sports icons, local artists, up-and-coming musicians, foodie spots, and more. To get started, we invite you to get to know the city through the words of the institutions themselves. Partners include the Carnegie Museum of Art, The Pittsburgh Glass Center, The University of Pittsburgh, Carlow University Art Gallery, BOOM Concepts, Mattress Factory, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, The Frick, and more. There’s a little bit of something for everyone — so read on to discover what a few of Google Arts & Culture’s Pittsburgh partners love about their own city.
