3 Colorful Murals Always on View in Pittsburgh

Anneliese Martinez, senior director of The Andy Warhol Museum’s Pop District program, shares three colorful murals always on view in Pittsburgh.

Over The Rainbow by Typoe

117 Sandusky Street
Located on the exterior of The Andy Warhol Museum, facing Rose Way, Miami-based artist Typoe calls the site specific mural “an opportunity to engage the public with a selection of playful forms,” allowing “room for individuals to discover and interpret the composition.” Even without visiting the museum, Over the Rainbow is an opportunity to exercise the imagination.

Rainbow Road

Strawberry Way
It’s hard not to smile strolling down the bright and eye-catching Strawberry Way. The rotating street mural, currently in its third manifestation, now features the work of local artists Shane Pilster and Max Gonzales alongside PDP and Pittsburgh CAPA students. With a glance down the vivid pedestrian walkway, it’s easy to see why the students who completed the project dubbed it “Rainbow Road.”

City of Asylum Alleyway

400 Sampsonia Way
The City of Asylum serves as a sanctuary for endangered writers, bringing together a community of readers, authors, poets, and more from around the world. Take a little walk on the street, which houses those in the nonprofit’s residency program, and you’ll discover that the creativity extends beyond the art of language. Homes donning colorful murals, hand-drawn illustrations, and 3D art mark the dwellings of the exiled writers.
