A big thank you to BurghJay on Twitter. He showed me the Pittsburgh Art in Public Places book I’ve been using as a guide for this blog is online. To see more examples of some of the hidden treasures in downtown you can download the book here.
This photo shows some of the Pittsburgh Pirates Baseball Club’s all time greats. If you know and love baseball…how many of them can you name?

This is a relief that is on the City-County Building facade. The building’s architect was Edward B. Lee and the designer was Henry Hornbostel of Palmer, Hornbostel and Jones. According to Wikipedia, over half of Mr. Hornbostel’s work was done in Pittsburgh.
