Building Description:

The sleekly modern August Wilson Center for African American Culture. built in 2008, is a multi-purpose venue featuring three art galleries, a 492-seat theater for performances in all genres, meeting areas, and unique educational opportunities for the young and old alike.

The AWC mission is to honor and support the important cultural contributions of African Americans from a local, national and international perspective, and illuminate artists from every inventive genre.

The August Wilson Center is open to the public and welcomes the region to participate, share and celebrate this very American creative experience.

This unique opportunity is made possible by a collaboration between the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, the Heinz Endowments, Richard King Mellon Foundation and the Pittsburgh Foundation.
