Center for Creativity


Get involved!

  • Celebrate diversity by creating work for a new showcase and competition.
  • Submit work for our new digital zine. 


Art of Diversity Showcase & Competition

The arts are more crucial than ever during times of crisis as they provide a cathartic and thought-provoking outlet for self-expression.

All members of the Pitt and regional community are invited to submit creative works of any kind, relevant to aspects of their cultural identity, sociocultural topics, or social justice issues for entry in the Art of Diversity Showcase.  In need of some inspiration?  Check out these PittPrompts.

Creative works will be displayed on the Showcase gallery and University web and social media channels (with attribution to the artists).  All works are eligible for award distinctions and awardees will be announced at the 2020 Diversity Retreat (Wednesday, July 29).

Details on submission are at the Office of Diversity & Inclusion website. Deadline is Monday, July 6.


The COVe, a harbor for art in difficult times

We're starting an online zine to collect and curate art, writing, comics, and graphics produced during these strange days of physical distancing.

The COVe aims to collect and share work from Pitt creators. Work need not be COVID-19 themed, or specifically reference themes of isolation or social/physical distancing: our goal is to collect and share the work you, our Pitt creative community, are producing during these unique times.

Writing, collage, digital art, drawings, paintings, comics, scribbles, and all other forms of 2D work are welcome. If you can put it in a PDF file, we're interested. 

​Submit by emailing with your attachment!
