The Lab @ Silver Eye at 5228 Penn Avenue includes our expanded Digital Lab and our new Education Center and Library. This Creativity and Education Hub will be a place for photographers, artists, researchers, and art lovers to create, learn, and connect–a living room, classroom, and workspace for photographers.

The Digital Lab at The Lab @ Silver Eye

The Digital Lab at The Lab @ Silver Eye is where we print our museum-quality exhibitions shown at Silver Eye’s Aaronel and Irving deRoy Gruber Gallery at 4808 Penn Avenue. The Lab is available to experienced lab members to join as members for their own production needs. The Lab is also available to provide service work to organizations and individuals. Our clients include the Carnegie Museum of Art, Hillman Library at the University of Pittsburgh, and the Mattress Factory.
