  • August Wilson Center for African American Culture
    Though having only recently celebrated its second birthday, the August Wilson Center commands a striking architectural confidence. Its two-story steel-and-glass sail juts into the night sky with the bravado of a toddler who just lassoed his first neighborhood cat. Within the steal and glass, a 486-seat theater hosts plays, dance performances, and lectures while multiple exhibition galleries display art and cultural treasures for the community. The center draws on the legacy and culture of African Americans from Western Pennsylvania, infusing each curation with a celebration of rich history.

  • Frick Art and Historical Center
    When Helen Clay Frick passed away in 1984, she left behind provisions for her childhood home, one of the few surviving buildings on Pittsburgh's fabled "Millionaire's Row," to be restored and opened to the public. Her family home from 1883-1905—named Clayton by Helen's industrialist and art collector father, Henry Clay Frick—is one of the only intact Gilded Age homes left standing in America. The 22 historic rooms were restored to circa 1900 conditions and visitors can view many art acquisitions along with some of the original household furnishings. Also on the 5.5-acre property, The Frick Art Museum hosts temporary exhibitions and displays a permanent collection with a focus on early-Renaissance Italian painting and 18th-century French painting and decorative arts. Size: 5.5 acres of land, the home of the Frick Art Center, the Car and Carriage Museum (temporarily closed for renovation), a Greenhouse, and Clayton Eye Catcher: if visitors are roaming the grounds, they'll probably be most impressed by the original house, a 22-room mansion purchased by the Fricks in 1882 and expanded in 1892 The Building: the Frick Art Museum opened in 1970, but many structures date back to the 1800s Permanent Mainstay: Henry Clay Frick began his collection of art, emphasizing landscapes, portraits, and Old Master paintings, with the purchase of Landscape with River by George Hetzel, which hangs in Clayton Don't Miss: Rolling Hills, Satanic Mills: The British Passion for Landscape–a new exhibition that just opened in The Frick Art Museum
