Join Morton Brown, a local public art aficionado, for a walking tour of one of our most striking City parks, exploring its history, public art, and amenities.

Morton has many interesting, first-hand stories to share regarding the restoration of “Lady Fame” atop the Civil War monument overlooking Lake Elizabeth, the Maine monument, the fountain near Cedar Avenue, and more!

Additionally, this tour will venture into Allegheny Center to visit sculptures by Syl Damianos, Ned Kahn and others, while learning about the history of the Museum Lab, the Children’s Museum, Federal Galley, and the exciting rebirth of the Center itself!

Please join us for this one-of-a-kind tour of one of Pittsburgh’s living treasures.
