Art For Change, presented by UPMC, is one of the largest art auctions in Pittsburgh and features works of art donated by local and national artists. We have a fantastic high-energy evening planned which includes the opportunity to bid on over 150 pieces of art, participate in the live art auction, enjoy diverse and inclusive entertainment, enjoy delicious food from Bob Sendall and his team at All in Good Taste Productions, sip cocktails & mocktails all while mixing and mingling with our community and allies!
