Market Square Public Art ProjectDon’t Miss This Downtown Pittsburgh Showcase

Should you be in Pittsburgh between now and April 30, be sure to check out this downtown Pittsburgh showcase. After having seen the Square from a bird’s eye-view, Allard van Hoorn, a Dutch artist, decided he wanted to turn Market Square into a record player for this year’s art installation. His work incorporates the use of sound in an effort to interpret urban landscapes. Van Hoorn composed a couple of tracks of music that he says were inspired by the sounds of different community groups, including tap dancers from Point Park University, student-poets from the local Performing Arts School, members of Downtown Clean Team, steel drummers, the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, Project Silk and an organist from a local Lutheran Church.

Come and Stay with Us

Whether you’re coming to town especially for the showcase or will simply be in Pittsburgh when it is on, book your stay with us at Sheraton Pittsburgh Hotel at Station Square. After a day at Market Square, relax in the Sheraton Club Lounge or have a swim in our indoor heated pool or whirlpool. Don’t forget to join us for the Sheraton Social Hour where you can sample various wines from our menu, before retiring to a well-appointed guest room with all the amenities necessary for a comfortable stay.
