The Pink Gingham Project

Maura Doern Danko left us this lovely piece of gingham to place in Polish Hill’s landscape.Here it is, freshly installed in the rose bushes outside the Polish Hill Civic Association office on Brereton Street —


The project is a continuing one, with swatches being sent to far-flung locations. Following is an excerpt from Ms. Danko’s satement about the Pink Gingham Project.

For several months throughout the winter, these small gingham swatches with iron-transfer drawings were left in various locations around Pittsburgh. Many interfaced with the rivers throughout the region. They were intended as impermanent, fleeting gestures. Several have been given to students to photograph. And several more have been mailed to various individuals; their photographs constitute part of an ongoing archival compilation. Maura Doern Danko
