Pittsburgh Glass Center
May 22 – 28
Various times

So often, the vital work of nonprofits goes on quietly and daily — yet largely unnoticed.

A new exhibition opening this week at Pittsburgh Glass Center will give the public a rare behind-the-scenes look at six area nonprofits working tirelessly to improve our communities.

Organized by The Benter Foundation, Each and Every features 30 powerful images by award-winning photographers Annie O’Neill, Rebecca Kiger and Nancy Andrews.

Capturing the spirit of a diverse group of local nonprofits — and celebrating the efforts of the leaders, staff and volunteers making them all happen — the exhibit calls attention to the work of 412 Food Rescue, Kelly Strayhorn Theater, Pittsburgh Glass Center, BikePGH and Fund My Future.

Don’t miss the opening reception on Wednesday, May 23 from 4:30 to 6 p.m.

On May 23 at 2:30 p.m., the three featured artists will join Pittsburgh designer Rick Landesberg to lead a free master class (register here), where attendees will learn how to strengthen the visual storytelling of their nonprofit by collaborating with photojournalists.

Also accompanying the exhibition is the ongoing Velocity program, a cohort-based fundraising and movement-building training session led by renowned speaker and researcher, Derrick Feldmann, founder of Achieve. During the program — which is co-presented by The Forbes Funds — local mentors learn best practices for engaging their communities more effectively.
