A New Space for Creativity

Cultural gateway for Upper Lawrenceville

Contemporary Craft is ready for a transformation.

We are excited to be open in our new, permanent home in Pittsburgh’s Upper Lawrenceville neighborhood at 5645 Butler Street! This is where art comes to life.

A bold and sustainable future in this new home will build on Contemporary Craft’s guiding principles: artistic excellence, inclusion and engagement, and socially conscious arts leadership.

The $5.5 million-dollar facility will provide a space for inspiration, contemplation, and creativity in everyday life and serve as a cultural gateway for Upper Lawrenceville as well as a new tourist destination for the region. The Grand Opening Events have been postponed.
