Manchester Craftsmen's Guild is a multi-discipline, minority-directed center for arts and learning that employs the visual and performing arts to foster a sense of accomplishment and hope in the urban community. MCG provides a broad spectrum of visual arts experiences in its gallery spaces on the North Side and downtown Pittsburgh. An annual schedule of exhibitions, lectures, workshops and residencies promotes creative and cultural discovery by connecting diverse accomplished artists to young people and their communities. Most exhibitions and lectures are offered free to the public.
Since 1987, MCG Jazz has brought audiences together with jazz artists at its 350 seat music hall in Pittsburgh for innovative four-day performances and recordings. Many of these international masters of jazz would headline a list of jazz's "needs no introduction"—Joe Williams, Billy Taylor, Dizzy Gillespie, Stanley Turrentine, and Ray Brown. The performance series, one of the oldest in the nation, is an anchor of Pittsburgh cultural and community life.
