Poetry at the convention center


On the roof of the David Lawrence Convention Center we were able to take this great shot. The blue on the side of the building is actually scrolling poetry. We found out that in Pittsburgh they (I think it was a certain organization) are trying to spread poetry around the city. This scrolling poetry is one way in which it is happening. Pretty cool, eh?

Yeah, I have about a dozen photos of that too b/c I thought it was so cool. One of the convention center workers said that each side was actually scrolling an entire novel. As in, two novels, one per side. I'm not convinced he was right, as there was a lot of repetition in the text, but regardless, Pitt had a lot of sweet art going on.
