That's So Pittsburgh: Alphabetasaurus
Seen around town: Alphabetasaurus. Baltimore had fish (2001) and crabs (2005), Berlin had Buddy Bears (2001-2003), and Pittsburgh--the city of three rivers and home of numerous fossils at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History--had Triceratops, Stegasauri, and Tyrannosaurus Rexes. Phillips Elementary School art teacher Carl Goldman helped students and staff design letters for this sculpture for the 2003 Carnegie Museum of Natural History Dinomite exhibit. Sponsored by the Grable Foundation, because education is a key to unlocking children's futures. I like the multi-colored, patchwork quilt effect.
