Say goodbye to the August Wilson Center, and say hello to the August Wilson Cultural Center (AWCC),  a new vision for the art institution that settled in Downtown Pittsburgh 10 years ago.

Yesterday, the organization officially announced the launch of its new name and an upcoming schedule of ambitious spring programming. Per a press release, the new direction will work to position AWCC as an internationally-known leading presenter of the arts and cultural expression of the African diaspora.

Since it first launched, the AWCC has set out to honor its Pittsburgh playwright namesake by becoming a home for the arts, storytelling, learning, and exchange around the African-American experience. As part of that, it has welcomed a variety of performers, artists, speakers, and events built around celebrating the culture of African Americans.
