Lawrenceville based artist, Ron Donoughe, intends to visit 90 neighborhoods in Pittsburgh over the next year. During those visits he “will be creating a visual time capsule of paintings and experiences that will be shared” on his blog. He often meets people while out painting, and will write little bits about his experience as well.

This is a really cool project.  I love Ron’s paintings, where he’s able to take something mundane like a highway overpass, and turn it into something beautiful. Of course, his paintings of neighborhood streets are incredible in the way it makes you feel like you are in the landscape.

Really excited to see what this project brings about.  Check it out!
