Assemble is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization founded by Nina Marie Barbuto dedicated to fostering learning and creativity. We connect artists, technologists, and makers with curious adults and kids of all ages through interactive gallery shows, community talkbacks, learning parties, and workshops focused on teaching STEAM principles (science, technology, engineering, art, and math). Assemble hosts these activities at our space in Garfield’s Penn Avenue arts district and at events throughout Pittsburgh.
