The initiative of Neighborhood Allies and the city’s Office of Public Art seeks to team community-based organizations,  artists and residents to develop a temporary work of public art to be displayed in each of six communities in both Pittsburgh proper and first-ring suburbs. The neighborhoods are Millvale, Larimer, Homewood, Wilkinsburg, the Hill District and the Southern Hilltops.
