Connecting the North Side: The Corridor
January 1, 2020 12:15 pm
"The Corridor" is a place-making initiative that will better connect Pittsburgh's North Side through wayfinding and cultural and economic development.
The Corridor is a place-making initiative that will better connect Pittsburgh's North Side through continued cultural and economic development and encouraging wayfinding through accessible recreational space. The Corridor will focus on the approximate one-mile passage from the Mattress Factory to the Andy Warhol Museum. Through (1) wayfinding initiatives and public art, (2) collaborative mapping and marketing, and (3) joint programming, including a free day, the Corridor, inclusive of all institutions and the surrounding community, becomes a destinations in and of itself.
Corridor partners continue to meet regularly and have engaged Rachel Klipa with the Office of Public Art and Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council to guide discussions around public art activations to connect the partner organizations and explore themes of movement, play, and exploration. The Corridor partners have also begun conversation with Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership about permanent and temporary wayfinding solutions.
