PGH Beautiful: Murals, December 2011

A sampling of the wonderfully colorful murals in and around Pittsburgh.

Street scene along Penn Ave in Garfield.

Quilting on the side of building along Penn in Bloomfield.

A collection of the awesome things that make the Strip awesome.


  1. I've always loved that mural coming up Penn of the groom carrying his bride into the house. No idea what the backstory is, but in the narrative that I constructed, the groom bought that house, had the mural commissioned and the bride didn't see it until he was carrying her across the threshold.

  2. Zack! I love that mural, probably the most. I've read the story about it before. I won't tell you here, but next time you're over, I will make you read it for yourself. They're currently working on restoring it now. Bit by bit.
