In conjunction with a new PR campaign, Pittsburgh has put up these inflatables.
They were chosen in some kind of competition. Each one has a card in front of it showing the artist’s drawing next to a photo of the completed inflatable. Those small images are kind of cute but the 30 foot reality is pretty awful. Size, or rather, scale, makes a big difference.
You can see "Dippy" almost dwarfed in the background.
They were only up for a few days before the graffiti had to be cleaned off. I can understand why someone was tempted. That’s a Henry Moore in the background below.
