“Mark of a Good Pittsburgh Bar’
A long-term shell distribution project in Pittsburgh, PA.
Shells and rocks collected from coastal Massachusetts are individually placed in public places in Pittsburgh neighborhoods. One round of shells has been placed around on a walk from Cypress St in Bloomfield, through Shadyside, up Negley Hill into Squirrel Hill. A second round of shells, some hand-painted, were placed in the snow, around Flagstaff Hill, Schenley Park.
This project is ongoing and is carried out on foot. Shells will appear across the burrows of the city, with the implication that waves have carried these sea specimens inland, and the hope that discoveries of these treasures will bring curiosity and joy to Pittsburghers.
