The Art Institute of Pittsburgh abruptly closed in March 2019.
The Art Institutes are a system of schools specializing in graphic design and fine arts with 13 campuses in eight states. In addition to arts-based programs in subjects like Visual Design, Animation & Effects, and Interior & Product Design, The Art Institutes also offer courses in Culinary and Fashion arts. Furthermore, The Art Institutes help student artists explore the arts in professional industries through trips to events like NYC Fashion Week and SXSW Gaming. Formerly a for-profit institution, The Art Institutes have redesigned their schools as non-profit organizations.
