The busiest pedestrian walkway in Downtown Pittsburgh is receiving a brand-new makeover featuring a large-scale mural on the street. Pittsburghers may remember the popular, colorful abstract mural which graced Strawberry Way for the past two years. With wear and tear the art was recently removed to make way for a brand new art installation entitled Who Gets To Eat The Most Fruit? by Pittsburgh-based artist Julie Mallis. The mural is a project of Envision Downtown, a partnership between the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership and the City of Pittsburgh, with technical assistance from the Office of Public Art.
The fruit shapes that create the pathway across the alley feature seven local fruits to Pittsburgh and introduce them as they come into season, beginning with strawberry itself, it continues into cherries, peaches, watermelons, grapes, apples and pears. Learn more here.
