Wood Street Galleries, a visual arts project of the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, is a gallery located in Downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.[1][2][3][4] The gallery occupies the upper floors of the Max Azen company building, above the Wood Street light rail stop.[5][6][7]

History

The triangular-shaped building that houses the gallery was transferred to the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust in 1990 by the Pittsburgh Port Authority Transit, for the sum of $1 per year.[8] The Wood Street Galleries were established two years later in 1992.[8]

The gallery has a focus on contemporary and technological art.[9]
