yART Sale 2013
Sunday June 23, 10:00am-4:00pm

Pittsburgh Center for the Arts will hold its annual “yART” sale – a creative spin on the traditional yard sale – on the lawn, Sunday, June 23, 2013. Adjacent to Mellon Park, PCA's tree-lined campus is at the corner of Fifth and Shady in Shadyside. Admission is free; and non-perishable food items will be collected for the Greater Community Pittsburgh Food Bank. Hours are 10:00 – 4:00, rain or shine.        

The annual outdoor event will feature approximately 70 local artists this year. They are cleaning out their studios to bring affordable art, equipment and art supplies (including paints, brushes, paper, and drawing tables). Expect to find ceramic pieces, photographs, jewelry, art books, fabric, unframed prints, glass pieces, and collectibles.

“It's just a great opportunity for folks to get outside, meet local artists and find a few art bargains,” says Tiffany Whitfield, manager of The Shop at PCA. There will also be art activities for children, so it's  perfect for families as well, she says.

yART Sale prices range from 50 cents to 200 dollars, with most items at bargain-basement prices. All proceeds benefit the programs of PF/PCA.
