PPG Completes COLORFUL COMMUNITIES Project at Arcade Comedy Theater in Pittsburgh

PPG (NYSE:PPG) today announced the completion of a COLORFUL COMMUNITIES™
project in partnership with the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust that helped to
revitalize the new location of the Arcade
Comedy Theater. The Colorful Communities program provides PPG
volunteers and products along with financial contributions to bring
color and vitality to communities where the company operates around the
world, such as in Pittsburgh, PPG’s global headquarters city.

The project brought together more than 25 PPG volunteers, who spent
approximately 100 volunteer hours revitalizing the Arcade Comedy
Theater’s new home located at 943 Liberty Ave in Pittsburgh. PPG
provided $30,000 to assist with the project, including 155 gallons of
PPG PAINTS™ MANOR HALL® product. Volunteers brought the
freshly-constructed space to life by adding vibrant yellow, blue, purple
and gray PPG Paints colors to the interior of the two-story
building as well as the exterior entranceway.

Arcade Comedy Theater was founded in 2013 as Pittsburgh’s only
non-profit comedy theater and offers stand-up, improv, sketch comedy,
variety acts, educational classes and other programming. Arcade Comedy
Theater was also voted “Best Place to see Live Comedy” in 2017 by
Pittsburgh Magazine.

“The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust and Arcade Comedy Theater are great
partners in the local community – a community where PPG has held our
headquarters for more than 130 years,” said Sue Sloan, PPG executive
director, corporate global social responsibility. “PPG and these
organizations work to create a more vibrant, fun and engaging community,
and we’re proud to complete a Colorful Communities project in the
Pittsburgh area.”

The Colorful Communities program is PPG’s signature initiative
for community engagement efforts, with the aim to protect and beautify
the neighborhoods where PPG operates around the world. The program
increases PPG’s commitment to invest in communities and supports
projects that transform community assets, providing PPG volunteers and
donated PPG products. In 2015 and 2016 combined, PPG completed nearly 60 Colorful
Communities projects, and it expects to complete about 75 more this
