Mission Statement

The August Wilson Center for African American Culture engages regional and national audiences in its mission of preserving, presenting, interpreting, celebrating and shaping the art, culture and history of African Americans in Western Pennsylvania and people of African descent throughout the world. The Center realizes its mission with an engaging schedule of visual and performing arts programs as well as educational and public programs.

Description

The August Wilson Center for African American Culture (formerly known as the African American Cultural Center of Greater Pittsburgh) is a not-for-profit organization that presents performing, visual and education programs that celebrate the contributions of African Americans within the region and the impact of cultural expression from Africa to the African Diaspora.

The August Wilson Center for African American Culture is currently in the process of completing a new facility: a state-of-the-art, multi-disciplinary venue. With its location at Liberty Avenue in Downtown Pittsburgh, the AWC will make a stunning addition to the growing Cultural District, and a strong contribution to the financial and cultural regeneration of the city. The new Center, currently under construction, will open to the public in 2009.

More than a museum, the new August Wilson Center for African American Culture building will be reflective of all aspects of African American culture. The AWC will include galleries, classrooms, a 486-seat theater, a gift shop, a cafe, and many multipurpose spaces available for rental and use by the community and to be used for visual and performing art and expression.
