Meet our Newest Director, Brittany Reilly

Brittany Reilly

Having gathered experience in Chicago, New York, and through much travel, Brittany returned to her hometown of the one and only Pittsburgh in 2017, eager to continue supporting art, design, and architecture organizations and studios through her work as a project manager and creative producer.  In facilitating ideas, Brittany's aim is to build awareness and engage diverse networks around cultural heritage and the contemporary practices that perpetuate it.  Her local work includes development and special projects for the Frank House, a residence in Shadyside designed by Walter Gropius and Marcel Breuer in 1939-40, being preserved for future public access.  She curates Design Nation, a project exploring modern forms of art, craftsmanship, and applied arts of the 20th century and their intersection with our built environment.

Brittany resides in Highland Park, deeply grateful for a view of our city's remarkably eclectic neighborhoods, which Preservation Pittsburgh is dedicated to protecting and celebrating.  She joined the Board of Directors in June 2017 with particular interest in highlighting Modern architecture and design of Pittsburgh and the region.

Brittany received her M.A. in Visual Arts Administration from NYU Steinhardt in 2013 and B.A. in Visual and Critical Studies from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2005, combining study of non-profit management with cultural theory and art, architecture, and design history.

We are thrilled to have Brittany with us and if you'd like to know more about joining the Board and being more involved with Preservation Pittsburgh, please contact us at:
