Pittsburgh has many amazing museums, but something less prevalent, but just as beautiful and worthy of celebration are all the pieces of street art that can be found throughout the city’s 90 unique neighborhoods.


Art should be accessible, and enjoyable for all. Here are some local gems that make our neighborhoods special. Whether you’re looking to admire street art, take some photographs of the city, or find the perfect Instagram spot, here are just a few of my favorite murals:

You can’t be interested in the street art scene in Pittsburgh without knowing who Baron Batch is. If you’re not lucky enough to find one of the former Steeler’s paintings when he does a drop, snapping a photo with one of his murals is also fun! One of his classic elephant paintings can be found on 2400 East Carson Street in Southside.

House Poem-Huang Xiang

House Poem is one of my favorite murals in Pittsburgh. Huang Xiang, the first exiled writer in the City of Asylum/Pittsburgh residency program painted a poem of joy across the house that he was staying in through the City of Asylum program. It can be found on 408 Sampsonia Way in the Northside.

Randyland on 1503 Arch Street in the Northside is a Pittsburgh staple. If you’re lucky, you can catch Randy there as well!  It is a whole outdoor museum full of beautiful, unique, colorful things that Randy has created and collected over the years. It is free to all!
