With 90 painted chairs, Pittsburghers celebrate the arts while welcoming visitors
Updated: April 05, 2020 - 2:32 am

(BPT) - In spring 2019, VisitPITTSBURGH launched a new national marketing campaign — Pull Up a Chair. You are Welcomed Here.

Now VisitPITTSBURGH, along with the Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council (GPAC), is taking the Pull Up a Chair campaign to an all new level by using an offshoot of the campaign — the 90 Painted Chairs Program — to drive awareness of the city’s thriving arts and culture community while also benefiting a local arts-related charity.
