Call for Volunteers

Whether you are an old hand at jumping in to help, or if this is your first time - the BEST way to get the most out of your PSA membership is to volunteer!

It's how you'll know for sure you belong to a great organization, meet others, get re-ignited for new art ideas and just have fun working with others with a common goal.

Volunteers are needed for "ARTday with PSA", a two-day event.
Saturday, July 21,2012 6:00PM-9:00PM

Art the Play
A group of 17 PSA members and friends will be seeing play ART together. "We will be seated together at tables. Sounds like it will be great fun," says Carol Skinger who organized PSA participation. There will be six performances of the play at Boyd Community Center in O'hara Township/Fox Chapel. So if another date works for you, you are encouraged to contact Stage Right Boyd and see the play at a time that best suits you.

Mayota Hill

has a work in a juried exhibition at the August Wilson African American Cultural Center. The exhibition is titled, COMMON GROUND: AFFRILACHIA; WHERE I'M FROM.

The word Affrilachia relates to an African-American who lives in Appalachia.  The show features works from 31 artists of color living within the 13 states of Appalachia.  Her piece was inspired by the many black musicians born in the Pittsburgh, PA area.   

The exhibition will be on display until March 17, 2012.
