The Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council is thrilled to announce a new Art on the Walls exhibit at Turner Construction in Downtown Pittsburgh
Turner Construction Company is engrained in the western Pennsylvania region, with its first project dating back to 1908 with the contract for work on Forbes Field, the original home of the Pittsburgh Pirates Baseball Club and the Pittsburgh Steelers. Over the following decades, Turner built many of the prominent buildings throughout the Pittsburgh region, including the 64-story US Steel Tower which continues to hold the record for the tallest building in the city. Turner opened a full-service ofﬁce in Pittsburgh in 1976 and has grown to a dedicated and talented staff of 100 who work on projects across western Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
Like the artwork that is displayed throughout its office, construction is an art all its own. While artists work in mediums such as clay or paint, Turner projects are built from an assortment of materials such as concrete, steel and drywall. Hand in hand, a variety of techniques are used throughout the construction process — carpentry or masonry to name a few — with specific trades for each method, similarly to how artists specialize on one approach to focus their work. The art of building is showcased with every project Turner completes.
Turner Pittsburgh is excited to enliven its new office in the US Steel Tower with artwork created by regional artists to convey the history and contemporary vibrancy of the Pittsburgh region.
All work is available for sale, unless noted otherwise, and artists receive 80% of each sale. Purchase a piece today by clicking on "purchase art" below.
