Mosaic Mural for Library Park


Thanks to Laura Jean McLaughlin’s fabulous design and the efforts of dedicated community artisans, the mosaic mural for Library Park is becoming a thing of beauty!  Over the course of ten workshops, the mural has evolved into a model public art project, with participants coming from Penn Hills, McKeesport, Apollo and Wheeling, as well as Carnegie and environs.
Four additional workshops have been scheduled.

Celebrated Pittsburgh artist Laura Jean McLaughlin has designed two fabulous mosaic murals that will become very public, outdoor art in Library Park.  The Library & Music Hall, Carnegie, Pittsburgh and parks everywhere inspired Laura Jean’s art.

The murals will adorn two low walls – 53 and 64 feet long. Park goers will use these walls as benches to eat their lunch, read a book or commune with nature. The walls can be used for outdoor classrooms and they will provide a 117- linear feet wall-walking bonanza for generations of children enjoying Library Park!
