The Mr. Roboto Project is a cooperatively-run show space and art gallery located in Pittsburgh, PA. Our aim is to create a comfortable and open safe space for people to experience a true DIY (do-it-yourself) community.
Roboto identifies as a "safer space," meaning racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, or any other types of oppressive language are considered inappropriate and are not tolerated. Roboto is meant to be a safe, respectful, welcoming space for everyone.
Since opening in our original space in Wilkinsburg in November of 1999, The Mr. Roboto Project has been an attempt to create such a space: for the community, by the community. In February 2010, because of declining show attendance, we closed the doors of the Wilkinsburg location, but have since opened a new space in the Penn Ave Arts District.
