East Deutschtown Mural – MAKE ART!

After about seven days of painting, including a mural painting workshop with neighborhood teenagers, the East Deutschtown, Pittsburgh mural, titled MAKE ART! is completed.  The piece celebrates the spirit of assemblage sculpture, as demonstrated in the event, Art Olympics.  In the center of the piece, three sculpture-like figures attempt to create a kinetic sculpture out of found materials.  On the left, a sign marks the East Deutschtown location for the August 29th 2015 Art Olympic Festival.  Two musicians and a spectator represent the interactive nature of the event.  At the suggestion of local residents, the City of Pittsburgh and other local landmarks were added.  Generous donations of paint were provided by The Home Depot at Ohio Township and Pat Catan’s / Prism Art Supplies at Mt. Nebo.

The new Northside Pittsburgh mural titled, Make Art was completed on August 24th.
