Next week – Thursday Aug 19, 7pm – the HPCC is having a very special community meeting:
- View the plans for the Highland Park historic stone bridge reconstruction. Representatives from the City’s Department of Public Works will discuss the anticipated construction schedule and new public art created as a part of this project. It will be a straightforward masonry restoration to the Highland Park Pedestrian Tunnel with necessary improvements to the street and stormwater infrastructure that surrounds it; DPW intends to preserve the historic character of this structure for future generations.
- Meet Marlana Adele Vassar, a Highland Park-based artist and University of Pittsburgh alum who is one of two artists selected to create a new installation in Highland Park. Largely self-taught as an artist, Vassar’s philosophy of balancing style and substance has attracted a diverse audience to her work. She weaves symbolism, surrealism and rich storytelling into figures and patterns, resulting in works that are personal yet open to interpretation. She will be coming to share her art and begin collecting input from the community as she begins to design the new piece for the park.
- See you neighbors, enjoy treats, and win prizes! We will take advantage of the nice weather and celebrate the HPCC’s new lease of the Bryant Street Parklet by meeting at the parklet! There will be refreshments and door prizes donated by our neighborhood businesses. Feel free to bring lawn chairs or blankets for sitting on the grass.
