Open Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

SCC was established in 1971 by Elizabeth Rockwell Raphael to broaden opportunities for craft artists to exhibit and sell their work. The impetus behind its creation was the belief that many artists working with traditional craft materials were developing a unique vocabulary for these materials and in the process they were opening up a new avenue of creative effort in contemporary art. The Society for Contemporary Craft offers cutting edge exhibitions focused on multicultural diversity and non-mainstream art, as well as a range of classes, community outreach programs and a fantastic retail store.

In 1990, SCC established a satellite exhibition space at One Mellon Center which is located in downtown Pittsburgh.  Six exhibitions are organized annually in this space.  Located in the “T” station lobby of One Mellon Bank Center and open daily through midnight.  

Exhibitions and family friendly hands-on art activities in a drop-in studio are always free to the public.

Located at 2100 Smallman Street in Pittsburgh's historic Strip District
