About Cultural District
The Cultural District in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is an area in Pittsburgh which is managed by the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust. The Cultural District is a 14 square block area which is a thriving arts center. The Cultural District is filled with different theaters and performing arts centers, art galleries, restaurants, and shopping. Major arts organizations are central to this area including ballet companies, operas, and performing arts schools. The area began its development as The Cultural District in 1971 when the US senator Jack Heinz restored the Leow's Penn Theater and turned it into a beautiful concert hall named Heinz Hall. This new concert hall became the home for the Pittsburgh Symphony and began the renovations in the area which now collectively make up The Cultural District. This is the place to visit to get a beautiful dose of culture while in Pittsburgh or Pennsylvania. The area is lively and boasts at least seven different theaters. Some of the theaters include the Benedum Center, the Byham Theater and the Harris Theater. Shows run at all theaters day and night throughout the year. The Cultural District in Pittsburgh never has a lack of exciting performing arts performances to frequent, and there are always restaurants to dine at before or after a show.
