Giant Street Musicians

These were so cool. They are hidden away next to a sports bar (which, by the way, was really neat). Parking was hard to find, but I loved it.

Liberty Avenue Musicians

15-feet tall solid concrete musicians stand alongside the sidewalk. Located in the heart of downtown Pittsburgh, James Simon's popular large-scale musician sculptures have brought a bold and innovative artistic element to this urban setting.
