Bring Public Art to Stanton Heights!

Public art comes in many forms, from sculptures to murals to interactive elements that engage the community. All Stanton Heights residents are invited to join us for a meeting & presentation by the Pittsburgh Office of Public Art Director, Renee Piechocki. We hope this event will help launch an interested group of community members to pursue making public art a reality in the neighborhood. Public Art
