MAYOR UNVEILS FIRST OF FIVE RESTORED CITY ART SCULPTURES

MAYOR UNVEILS FIRST OF FIVE RESTORED CITY ART SCULPTURES

(PITTSBURGH)  Oct. 20, 2010      Mayor Luke Ravenstahl and community leaders this afternoon unveiled a newly restored City-owned sculpture, Untitled, by local artist James Myford, at Emerald View park, part of Grandview Park located in the City’s Mt. Washington neighborhood.
 
“Combining local art with the natural beauty of our City’s parks and open spaces is a great way to create places that spark creativity, imagination, and innovative ideas,” Ravenstahl said.
 
The sculpture was presented as a gift to the residents of the Mt. Washington and Allentown neighborhoods at Grandview Park’s 100th anniversary in Oct. 2009. After a year of extensive conservation made possible by a grant from the Richard King Mellon Foundation, the sculpture was presented to representatives from the Mt. Washington CDC, the Allentown CDC, the Friends of Grandview Park, and local residents.
 
This sculpture is one of five pieces of the City’s art collection that has undergone detailed restoration. The City is preparing to install three other freshly re-fabricated City-owned sculptures in Mellon Park later this year.
 
Myford’s large-scale aluminum sculptures can also be found in public and private collections throughout the United States, and in Japan, Sweden, Venezuela, Australian, and Brazil.
