Women of Visions, Inc. was co-founded in 1981 by a diverse group of Black women of African descent in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. In 1990, Visions was incorporated under the name Women of Visions and attained non-profit status in 1995. Since then, we have aspired to excel as artists and to grow professionally. Over the decades, we have sponsored exhibitions in several local as well as out of state galleries and museums. Our collaborative community efforts have reached both children and senior adults. We also host an annual educational program and encourage other progressive opportunities for our members.
