Women of Visions Benefit Auction

Co-founded in 1981 by a diverse group of African American women in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Women of Visions Inc. is the longest-running collective of Black women visual artists in the United States. The organization was incorporated in 1990 and achieved non-profit status in 1995. Originally established to create opportunities that had not been afforded to them in the traditional art world, WOV, Inc, over subsequent decades has sponsored, curated, or been represented by members and former members in hundreds of exhibitions, many of national and international acclaim. In addition to community outreach, through collaborative programming, and progressive arts opportunities, the collective has enriched all generations ranging from K-12 to senior adults. ? Members of Women of Visions, Inc. work in a variety of artistic mediums, which include: Painting, fiber art, collage, mixed media, printmaking, photography, ceramics, jewelry-making, graphics design, murals, and three-dimensional works. Nearly half of our members act regularly as teaching artists and are registered with our host organization, the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts School, and registered by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts. In 2022, WOV, Inc was named a Cultural Treasure by the Ford Foundation and Heinz Endowments.
