Looking for something special to mark the holiday season? Stop by Digging Pitt and Digging Pitt Too. Artists and crafters from the 'burgh and beyond will be converging to bring you their fanciful creations. Stop by the
Stuff blog for updates about special events at both spaces.

Digging Pitt was started by New York artist, John Morris, to create an open-ended, accessible way to showcase the creative output of regional and national artists. Digging Pitt is meant to act as a one of the new holes in the gallery system, a place where the works of new, emerging and under recognized artists can be seen. It is modeled after the legendary Pierogi2000 gallery in Brooklyn. It is a do-it-yourself gallery, requiring the viewers' active involvement to come to life.

In November, Digging Pitt Gallery will feature works from our
flat file artists. Currently Digging Pitt represents over 150 artists in its archives. Many of the works are available for viewing online. The artists represent a range of disciplines, including painting, drawing, printmaking, photography and collage.
