Market Square has been pretty quiet. WAAAAAYYY quieter than anyone imagined it would be. But there has been one riot... a riot of flowers.
The few businesses that did board up for the G-20 did it in style. These MSq businesses participated in the Pittsburgh Beautification Project.
Market Square Place.
If your neighborhood would benefit from the Pittsburgh Beautification Project, you may nominate a property by sending the property address to Bob Ziller, 412-606-1220. Please nominate properties where formal or casual consent of the property owner can be obtained. The next painting party will be held on Friday, October 2, 7pm to midnight at 4810 Penn Avenue.
If the flowers on Market Square Place aren't enough for you, take a walk over the 7th Street Bridge to see some of Andy Warhol's other work and the exhibit of G-20 political cartoons at the Warhol. (And then come back to MSq for some grub. I bet the walk will make you hungry!)
