It must be said that her version of events is consistent with things other local artists have told me about collaborating with the MLK outfit.
The artist's intent was to deliver a depiction of Andy Warhol's Marilyn Monroe, but with the face of a black woman - which is a pretty great idea for a Pittsburgh mural.
The meaning of the wall was an Andy warhol inspired black girl. Who exists out of floating machine parts. Where the kids are part of it. I wanted to symbolize that each and single one of us are needed to make a machine work well.
Friday 8.26 I got to ride with my friend KC. We started in Warren Ohio and rode north to Ashtabula. The route was a great, paved, level trail that's mostly got shade overhead. At the northern trail-head there's a great Mexican restaurant. It took us a little over six hours for 80 miles, which was my longest ride of the year. It was good to ride long with great company.
Saturday 8.27 I got to ride around Pittsburgh with two tour groups, one a business team and the other a group of first-year CMU students. Pittsburgh really shows well from the bike trails. Just a great day to ride.
