Onorato orders halt to removal of artworks
By Mark Belko, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Mr. Onorato said the proposed review committee would include representatives from local arts groups and architectural firms. While the panel would review requests to remove artwork from public facilities, Mr. Onorato made it clear that, as he sees it, such requests would be granted only in rare instances.
"You start with the assumption that the artwork stays. You've got to meet the burden of removal. The idea is to preserve artwork," he said.
