Art by Dwight

For the past couple years I’ve been working on a new and interesting idea that has turned into something visually rewarding and inspiring. My currently Pittsburgh PA based artwork is pastel on canvas. I turn graphically and historically interesting manholes that we walk over everyday into a piece of colorful and creative artwork.

Love For Sale at 6am     This manhole is from 1860 and is located on the  Boulevard of the Allies in downtown Pittsburgh, PA. It lives  in front of a historic building with a very colorful reputation  and reads The Grand Old Salon 1860 at the very top.

Pittsburgh Wall Street at 6am      This particular one is located in front of the Bank Building  on Fourth Avenue, Pittsburgh, Pa. Known decades ago as  “Pittsburgh Wall Street,” because it was the home to many of  the financial institutions that fueled the industrial revolution.  It was founded in Indiana, Pa. between 1851-1900.

Market Square at 6am      This particular one was located in old Market Square  down town Pittsburgh. It was founded between 1851 - 1900  but now gone because of progress. A little history lost.

Old-Allegheny-at-6am      This particular one is located on North Avenue and Federal  Street on the north side of Pittsburgh, Pa. This is the oldist  manholes that I have found and what makes it unique is  that it is dated. Founded in Chicago, IL. between 1845-1855.
