Sprout Public Art Downtown Project

In 2012, artists Jacob Ciocci and Matt Barton were selected from nearly 100 applicants with ties to the Pittsburgh region to create this work. Their proposal calls for a lively animated work rendered in light to be sited at the Bruno Building located at 945 Liberty Avenue in the heart of the Cultural District.

Highly visible during the evening theater hours, the piece would be animated in such a way that different shapes and patterns emerge throughout dozens of programmed loops—interacting with itself and the viewer throughout the day and evening before going to sleep for the night.

In February 2013, Sprout will host a community meeting for Downtown residents and businesses. Call 412-325-0646 or watch this space for more information.
