Pittsburgh Sculpture Walk, Three Rivers Trail

Update/Correction: This is not an official call for artists, we are looking for willingness to support a sculpture walk along Three Rivers Heritage Trail so if you're a sculptor and are interested in the project please email rick(at)

We are looking to model the project after Sioux Falls, SD.

A Sculpture walk along Three Rivers Trail is being developed and we're ideally looking for established artists who have previously created sculptures which they would be willing to place along the trail. The sculptures would be fitted onto existing stone pedestals. Exceptions will be considered as far as it needing to be secured to the pedestals just keep in mind we're talking about a public trail along one of the rivers.

*There are currently no funds to pay artist fees but there will be plenty of promotion once the site has been confirmed and the works are fitted. There will be signs which identify the work and contact info for the artist.

*We will try and secure funding for artist fees but nothing can be guaranteed at this point.

If interested please send and email to rick(AT) with the following information:

1) High quality images of the sculpture from multiple angles.

2) Materials used, dimensions (especially the bottom of the work), approximate weight, title and price.

3) Exhibit resume, contact information.

Thank you.

The Pittsburgh Art Blog

The Pittsburgh Art Blog features selected pittsburgh artists and upcoming exhibits with photos from the artists and galleries. since the major press outlets do not go beyond a directory listing of exhibits, blogs are needed to promote pittsburgh artists and their work. the blog also calls attention to the inferiority complex of pittsburgh art and how it's perpetuated by the major players in town. Started on August 20,2007. pittsburgh area galleries and art venues are listed at the sister site

the blog and website are volunteer projects from fine art photographer and pittsburgh artist advocate rick byerly.
