The WCDC’s Art All Over initiative transforms the workshop space in our newly renovated headquarters located in the historic Lohr Building into a gallery-level display space for local, Wilkinsburg artists. A partnership with the Sleeping Octopus Artist Initiative (SOAI), the initiative will celebrate and promote the many accomplished artists who live in the Wilkinsburg area.
In order to respect social distancing, the WCDC is embracing technology and social media to allow the public to enjoy local art in new ways. From the comfort of your home you can experience the exhibits through photos and a virtual tour online.

Born and raised in Newark, New Jersey, Tom Norulak attended Carnegie Mellon University and received his BFA degree in 1971. After living in Philadelphia for about 5 years, he returned to Pittsburgh in late1977 and has made the Pittsburgh area his home ever since.
During the 1980’s Tom established a successful commercial screen printing business. He began his active career as an exhibiting artist printmaker during the early 1990’s. His work has been exhibited throughout the Pittsburgh area as well as in selected national shows at well respected galleries, museums, universities and art centers. He has taught printmaking at Pittsburgh Center for the Arts for over 25 years and has also taught at Seton Hill University, Carnegie Mellon University Pre-College program, Carnegie Museum of Art and has been a guest instructor and lecturer at other schools and local art groups.
His etchings, screenprints, woodcuts and watercolors are based on his love of Pittsburgh and his travels throughout the years. Cook Forest in Western Pennsylvania is one of his favorite spots to hike and has inspired many of his works. West Virginia, California, Virginia, and Georgia are prominent influences as well as (it goes without saying) Western Pennsylvania.
