Our mission is to be a catalyst for community, creativity, and connection in the riverfront communities of Sharpsburg, Etna, and Millvale, through the arts.
Artspiration has a focus on community resilience, inclusivity, dignity, and well-being. We facilitate funding and provide access to networks and other resources to artists. Public art projects and events that center around "place making" and "place keeping" are seen as priorities to our organization as both concepts help inspire community pride.
Our work revolves around providing and supporting grant funded opportunities for projects that align with our organization's mission. We identify and communicate these funding opportunities directly to artists. Once partnered with an artist, we connect them to the information, spaces, tools, and resources that will help them create impactful work in the community.
Located and focused on working in Sharpsburg Borough, on the outskirts of Pittsburgh, PA along the Allegheny River, Artspiration hopes to bring inspiration and opportunities to all members of our community.
