Where is that Google car?

The Pittsburgh Galleries blog is a volunteer effort from Rick Byerly to promote Pittsburgh art events which feature artists from the area. The website effort is an up-to-date directory with Pittsburgh area art venues. Thanks go to Sirani Gallery of 5875 Forbes Ave in Squirrel Hill for being a sponsor and David L. Edwards Art and Anonymous for their donations to this effort. Donation and sponsor info can be found here. Rick Byerly, Uniquetake Photography

Pittsburgh artists Robin Hewlett and Ben Kinsley get another nod.

Last May, Pittsburgh artists Robin Hewlett and Ben Kinsley rallied north-side residents to stage scenes – including a marching band parade, a 17th century swordfight and a marathon – as the Google car passed by.
They also staged slightly more banal scenes, such as people carrying furniture from a moving van.
"We're trying to play with this line between reality that Street View cars capture all the time and these more fantastical moments, and blur that line," says Hewitt.
"If you stumbled upon that street (as a Google viewer) and didn't know this was artwork, you might entirely believe it."
