Started off at the Bastille with S, rode around the NorthSide and then looked for an illuminated-visual-Braille mural by Lizzy Devita that had been photographed a few years ago at the Artist Image Resource Center at 518 Foreland Street. Back in the day it looked like this:
Fast forward to 2013 and it's seen better days, the lights and the Braille rigging are gone and the mural's quite faded.
I've also read a cryptic reference to a mural of an urban DJ and a sound system along East Ohio Street, so we went looking and found it in a locked courtyard at 415 East Ohio Street. It's also faded and weathered. It's marked as being done by Atomik-Arts but I can't tell much more about it.
Across the street at Schrim's Garden Cafe, East Ohio Street at Moravian Way, there's a whimsical advertisement for E-O (Early-n-Often) Beer. Very nice.
We rode around the city to Point Breeze to get a picture of this mosaic by Daviea Davis at the Point Brugge Cafe:
Then we worked around to 7108 Edgerton at Selkirk Way, where we'd read there was a house with a big mosaic on the side and that was certainly true.
Rode to Squirrel Hill for a snack, then to CMU, Junction Hollow, Jail Trail, Ft. Duquesne Bridge, and did a bit of DR-navigating to find Chateau Street since the trail wasn't hospitable and managed to get back to the Bastille without salmoning.
A very nice day, 26 miles and it felt really good.
