Market Square has become a top dining destination Downtown. It soon could become a venue for aspiring artists.
Mayor Luke Ravenstahl and the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership are inviting artists or teams of artists to submit proposals or qualifications to display existing or new public art in Market Square over the next three years.
Under the initiative, the art will be displayed from February through April in 2014, 2015 and 2016. A team of local stakeholders, arts professionals and city employees will determine which works will be accepted.
"Our goal with this program is to extend the seasonal life of Market Square through temporary public art during the winter months, supporting the businesses Downtown and enlivening our streets," said Jeremy Waldrup, PDP president and CEO.
