As a graduate student, I don't have a lot of free time to experience the arts in Pittsburgh. However, when I came across this program offered by the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, I vowed to make time for the arts this school year. Keeping accessibility in mind, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust developed a program called ARTSpassport. As a member, students are eligible to purchase $10 tickets to selected performances - a great deal when most tickets on the schedule are $30 and up!
To sweeten the deal, local restaurants agreed to offer discounts on meal tickets so hungry students can grab a bite before the show. I think this is a great way to get young people to venture into Downtown Pittsburgh and make an evening out of it.
