Explore The Collection

The City Collection is made up of of permanent works of public art, monuments, memorials, and historic objects, owned by the City and intended for permanent display in the public realm.
The inventory below can be used to explore the collection, with images, locations, and key information given for each item.
Also included in this inventory are works of limited-term art - asphalt art, murals, and other installations that can be expected to experience wear over time, and so are often intended to have a shorter lifespan.

Look through the collection inventory here.

Coming soon!

The City of Pittsburgh's Collection Management Policy outlines criteria for the care and management of city-owned public art, monuments, memorials, and historic objects, as well as requirements and procedures related to other works of art on city property.
