For more than 40 years Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild has been a unique haven—a multi-disciplined arts and learning center that fosters a sense of belonging, interconnections, and hope within the urban community.
Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild is located on Pittsburgh’s North Shore in a state-of-the-art facility housing visual arts, design, ceramics and photography classrooms, a dining hall, auditorium/concert hall, and gallery all designed to showcase the roles of creativity and craftsmanship in learning. Handmade objects, furniture, photographs, and paintings that adorn public and private spaces create a model environment for education, exhibitions, performances, and social and professional gatherings.
Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild includes the nationally recognized MCG Youth program—dedicated to educating and inspiring Pittsburgh’s urban youth through the arts. Through public art exhibitions, MCG connects diverse, accomplished visual artists to Pittsburgh and its communities. Through Grammy-producing MCG Jazz, a social enterprise dedicated to preserving, presenting and promoting jazz music, MCG stimulates intercultural understanding and appreciation in the region and throughout the world.
