Art of Diversity

In conjunction with the 2022 Diversity Forum, the Pitt’s Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion and the Center for Creativity will present the third annual Art of Diversity Showcase.

All members of the Pitt and regional communities are invited to submit creative work of any kind, from visual art to writing to performance that expand diversity consciousness, particularly an awareness and understanding of intersectionality, and that embrace and celebrate minoritized cultures and perspectives.

Work will be displayed on the Showcase gallery, and on University web and social media channels, with artist attribution. Deadline for submissions is July 1, 2022.

All entries are eligible for award distinctions. Awardees will be announced during the Diversity Forum.
