Pittsburgh map mural

What's exciting about public murals is that they seem to spontaneously appear out of nowhere. I think people usually find them when they're lucky enough to glance in the right direction at the right place. Just today, I found a mural at an intersection I've passed hundreds of times over the years. Is the mural new? Probably not. I'm going to be documenting the murals I stumble across over the coming months, just because they're there and worth noticing. Here's the first:

At the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, there's a mural on a small shed visible from Shady Ave. For those unfamiliar with Pittsburgh geography, it's a map of the central spot in the region: the north side, downtown, and south side. I don't know much about this mural, but I'm guessing it was designed and created by kids.
