PNC Grow Up Great Gallery

Inspiring Great Futures through Arts Experiences

PNC Grow Up Great Gallery

The PNC Grow Up Great Gallery showcases nearly 300 handprints created by local Pre-K students at four local child development centers: St. Mark Child and Family Development Center, Metro Early Learning Center, Growing Futures Early Education Center, and El Centro Academy for Children.



PNC Bank created the gallery in partnership with the Kauffman Center as part of an effort to inspire great futures for local children by providing them exposure to the performing arts to enhance their creative minds. The gallery is updated each year with additional children’s handprints. It exemplifies PNC Bank’s signature 15-year-old flagship philanthropic program, PNC Grow Up Great, a bilingual initiative to prepare children from birth to age five for success in school and life.

Located in the Plaza Lobby of the Kauffman Center on Level 2, the PNC Grow Up Great Gallery is open to the public during box office hours, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. It is also open for viewing by ticketholders 90 minutes prior to any performance.

Two videos below show the handprint making and one of the events to reveal the completed art installation.
