Associated Artists of Pittsburgh 97th Annual Exhibition
Founded by a loose-knit group of artists in 1910 to foster a love of the fine arts and to inculcate a true appreciation of what Pittsburgh artists do for the advancement of art, the Associated Artists of Pittsburgh (AAP) is still an artist-run membership organization. In 1911, following its first exhibition in the lobby of the Grand Opera House, AAP began to show annually at Carnegie Museum of Art. Each year the organization invites artists living within 150 miles of the city to submit work for this survey exhibition, which is now in its 97th year. Jurored by American contemporary artist Polly Apfelbaum, the 2007 exhibition features approximately 130 works in various media.
General support for the exhibition program at Carnegie Museum of Art is provided by grants from The Heinz Endowments and the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts.
