About

The Lower Hill Redevelopment Project is the revitalization of the former Civic Arena, 28-acre site by a partnership formed by the Pittsburgh Penguins, FNB Bank, The Buccini/Pollin Group and Clay Cove Capital. It has the potential to transform the immediate Greater Historic Hill District, Downtown, Uptown, the entire City of Pittsburgh, Allegheny County and the Southwestern Pennsylvania region.

The Lower Hill Redevelopment site seeks to commission artworks for the first phase of the Lower Hill Redevelopment site in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, as part of its Open Space Arts Program. The artwork(s) will be sited in a prominent location or locations throughout the open space on planned parcels G1 and G4 in conjunction with construction of the FNB Financial Center and inspired by the production of the Frankie Mae Pace Park.

The artists’ willingness to learn in-depth about the Historic Hill District community, the connections to surrounding communities and the City of Pittsburgh, and to have continuous dialogue with the design team from which to apply the concepts, is integral toward developing the artwork(s).
