90 Pittsburgh Neighborhoods

Visual Arts

In 2013, artist Ron Donoughe set out to paint all 90 of Pittsburgh’s neighborhoods. Inspired by a map, he painted the neighborhoods in alphabetical order and completed the project within a single year to capture the changing seasons. In this program, students will view the 90 paintings on display in the Special Collections Gallery to learn about Donoughe’s plein air technique and how he was inspired by the city, explore and discuss different views of neighborhoods from the museum’s historic image collection, and use the view of Downtown from the History Center to work on sketching.
