Downtown’s Strawberry Way has a lovely ring to it, but Rainbow Road? Doesn’t it just scream with color?
If the name alone doesn’t brighten your mood, then check out the 440-foot-long, multicolored mural at your feet. Don’t worry – you’ve got some time to see it, as the urban artwork will be in place for three years.
As explained by the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership, Rainbow Road was inspired by the surrealist technique “exquisite corpse.” It was designed and painted by Pittsburgh Creative and Performing Arts students, along with guidance from professional muralists and graffiti writers Shane Pilster and Max GEMS Gonzales.
