Continuing the site’s evolution, this spring Walnut Capital is finishing up a 12,400-square-foot building on Penn Avenue, with a soaring three-story conservatory, outdoor courtyard and four restaurants from Galley Group (who created Smallman Galley). The plan is to make the new building a canvas for public art, on a pair of large, 720-square-foot facades.
Eighty-five artists responded to the RFQ, and the selection committee and Walnut Capital were so impressed with the applicants that they decided to double the size of the program to offer the job to two artists. Janel Young and Lori Hepner, both of Pittsburgh, will each have their artwork on display for six months."
