Social Meetings have been held almost every month since our founding in late 1996.
Think Happy Hour! Since 1996, PSI has hosted socials to relieve freelance isolation and expose everyone to the work of other members. Join us for informal shop talk along with great food and drink at different centrally located restaurants or at member home/studios. Appetizers supplied by PSI. All members and prospective members welcome!
The “Business of Illustration” Meetings
These programs cycle through member's home/studios and various public spots (like the Hub in West View) around Pittsburgh. The night typically includes a presentation by a member or outside speaker and networking. Attendees should bring a beverage and/or a snack to share. Locations and featured artists are posted on the PSI website and distributed via Basecamp announcements. One annual event to circle is the “PSI Goes to the Chapel” program event at The Chapel pavilion in Riverview Park on a Saturday in September TBA. Think major conference or retreat all packed into one day! Speakers, catered picnic, social time, etc.
