The Strip Mural

Neighbors in the Strip has announced the completion of artists Carley Parrish and Shannon Pultz’s 2010 mural in the Strip District. “The Strip Mural” was created in partnership with The Sprout Fund and members of the Strip District community to reflect the neighborhood’s vibrant culture and rich history. The mural, located at 1907 Penn Avenue, is one of the largest undertaken by The Sprout Public Art program.

Carley is a Polish Hill resident and also did an arts program for kids at West Penn in the summer of 2009.  She also teaches sculpture at CAPA High School.

A dedication event for the mural will be held at the mural site on Thursday, November 11, beginning at 4:30 pm, immediately followed by a reception at the adjacent Kaya restaurant.  Refreshments will be provided by Kaya and Papa J’s.  Entertainment will be provided by the CAPA Jazz Band, and the public is welcome.
