Belonging Project

A Place Where We All Belong

This city owes its resilience to the spirit and creative energy of the people who have made Pittsburgh their home, built communities here, and contributed to our shared future.

At this critical time in our nation’s history, when many immigrants and refugees don’t feel welcome in this country, The Sprout Fund is launching Belonging, a new community art project to positively affirm the notion that we all belong.

Call for Art

All people living in Pittsburgh and Allegheny County are invited to submit original works of art that express the concept of “belonging.”

  • Submissions due by Thursday, May 4, 2017 @ 7:00 pm ET
  • All submissions must be rendered with a 1:1 aspect ratio
  • Digital submissions are strongly preferred

A jury of art professionals will select 1 winning design to be reproduced as posters and yard signs and distributed throughout the region. The creator of the winning design will receive a $3,000 artist honorarium. 15 additional designs will be selected for inclusion on a “community voices” poster and receive $100 each.
