The Shop at PCA&M

For more than 50 years, Pittsburgh Center for Arts and Media (PCA&M) was well known for its
iconic shop in the Marshall Building at the corner of Fifth and Shady Avenues — a popular spot to
purchase locally-produced artworks in a wide variety of mediums. The shop supported the sale of
artist’s wares on a consignment-based format, providing sales opportunities to makers, revenue
to the organization, and an array of unique and creative finds perfect for gift giving, collecting, and
decor.

Since the shop’s closure in 2019, it has been a greatly missed attraction — particularly at holiday
shopping time — according to the regular community feedback we have received. With that in
mind, PCA&M staff is currently working to reestablish this vital component by actively
transforming former office space into a vibrant retail shop at our Scaife building location. THE
SHOP @ PCA&M will allow our members and local artists the opportunity to once again display
and sell their work on an ongoing basis.

Our goal is to have our new shop open in time for the Winter 2022 Holiday Shopping Season!

The next few months will be a critical time for us to raise funds and do the work to make
this happen… in order to purchase the flooring, lighting, shelving and the labor to get it
all done.

We seek to raise $15,000 in individual donations and sponsorships. We also welcome an
ongoing partner to sponsor and support the ongoing operation of the shop, as well as an
online sales platform.

Can you make a donation to help us bring back THE SHOP in time?

(For those willing, donor’s names (not amounts) will be recognized and displayed as
supporters of THE SHOP during the opening, Winter Market event, and into 2023.)

Thank you for your support!

By bringing back this historic component of the organization, we hope to:
•  Provide PCA&M member artists and local creatives with an opportunity to sell work and
build their careers as artists
• Welcome our students, visitors, and the greater Pittsburgh community to experience the
locally-made art and support the talented artists creating it
• Reestablish a supportive line of revenue for PCA&M, incentivize membership, and increase
foot traffic in and around the Scaife building
