Artists are an important factor in economic development. Vibrant artistic communities are a draw for tourists, employers and talented employees.

  1. Hi Rick Byerly,
    I've been wanting to do sculpt our legendary jazz musicians for some time now. Pittsburgh is so rich with legendary artists, I could sculpt for years and love every second of it. Thanks for mentioning me in your blog.
