Alex Taylor Contributes to Allegheny Landing Public Art Event

Alex Taylor will contribute to a public tour and discussion about the art and design of Allegheny Landing, the sculpture park on Pittsburgh's North Shore. Organized by the Office for Public Art (OPA), in collaboration with Riverlife, In Conversation at Allegheny Landing will occur on Saturday, October 1, 2022 from 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM. This event is free and open to the public; advanced registration is encouraged as breakfast refreshments will be served.

The event will explore the public art and civic design legacy of this unique riverfront park. The event will feature a tour of Allegheny Landing and its sculpture park, along with a moderated conversation between architectural historian Charles Rosenblum, art consultant Alice Snyder, and art historian Taylor. Snyder was the lead consultant for the commissioning of four artworks sited at Allegheny Landing’s sculpture park in the 1980s. Rosenblum’s, Snyder’s, and Taylor’s conversation will focus on the history, development, and future of the park and its sculptures. A light breakfast will be served.
