The Prospectus Series provides a 2,700 sq. ft. gallery space, mentorship, and professional development opportunities to emerging curators in the Pittsburgh community. Through involvement in a yearlong professional development program, curators will be provided with the support necessary to present a six-week exhibition in the Brew House Association Gallery located on the Southside. Experts in the field will give advice on essential skills for curators including developing an exhibition statement, artist engagement and interaction, community collaboration and outreach, installation, marketing and promotion. These strategies include access to professional guidance from those experienced in the field, time and space to realize a unique vision and the financial and administrative support necessary to produce a highly professional final product that might not otherwise become a reality.
The Gallery at the Brew House features a mix of changing exhibitions including exhibits organized in-house such as the annual Distillery emerging artist showcase, as well and offering exhibition space to local guilds and artist organizations to exhibit artwork. Exhibitions at the Brew House
strive to foster pathways for collaboration and exchange, offer an accessible atmosphere for experimentation, and to increase social awareness through representation of non-mainstream perspectives. Exhibitions are the widest reaching of Brew House programs, serving approximately 2,500 individuals annually that come to visit the gallery free of charge.
