If you participated in the 2020 Artist Market:
All 2020 Artist Market participants (“accepted” or “invited” last year) will automatically be featured in the 2021 virtual Artist Market at TrustArts.org/TRAF. Every artist will be contacted by the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust with an optional opportunity to update online website or ecommerce listings that may have changed during the past year. Please anticipate follow-up communication in March 2021.
As a result of guidelines related to COVID-19 and the adjusted Festival footprint, a very limited number of 2020 Artist Market artists will be invited to participate in-person in 2021. Out-of-state residents will not be eligible to participate in-person. Pennsylvania residents will be eligible, but are not guaranteed invites; jury scores from 2020 will determine a rank order, issued until the limited number of on-site booth locations are filled with accepting artists. Please anticipate follow-up communication in March 2021 regarding your invitation status, including details about the Festival’s planned health and safety protocols.
If you did not participate in the 2020 Artist Market:
Unfortunately, due to the Festival changes resulting from the pandemic, no new applications will be accepted for 2021. Anticipating that the Festival returns to full in-person capacity in 2022, a new application period will open in October 2021.
