"A full city block of vibrant landscape surrounded by modern skyscrapers opened in 1955 to the delight of Downtown Pittsburgh denizens. The striking yet practical plaza design by Simonds & Simonds and Mitchell & Ritchey included signature terrazzo pavers, sculptural fountains, 6 levels of parking beneath and street level storefronts. Fully restored in 2014 and soon a National Landmark, this ‘emerald oasis’ is captured in the hue of the Mellon family legacy."
Launched in January 2021 as a collaboration between the Pittsburgh Modern Committee and illustrator Shane Henderson, Pittsburgh Modern Prints is an ongoing series celebrating sites of 20th century modern architecture and design.
Your purchase of a limited edition, hand-pulled screenprint will directly support the work of this local artist and the advocacy and programming efforts of the Pittsburgh Modern Committee of Preservation Pittsburgh.
Screen printed with opaque ink on acid-free, FSC and Green Seal certified, 50% PCW recycled, 18pt Mohawk Loop Antique Vellum paper.
All of my large wall prints are sized at 12.5" x 19" inches (as you can see modeled here by my lovely girlfriend, Nicole), come to your door mailed in flat, rigid envelopes to prevent damage or curling, and are ready to frame.
