The Last Billboard
East Liberty neighborhood Pittsburgh, PA, 2010-present
The Last Billboard is a 36 foot long rooftop billboard located on the corner of Highland and Baum in Pittsburgh, PA, USA. Each month a different individual is invited to use the billboard. The custom designed billboard consists of a rail system with heavy wooden letters that are changed by hand.
The billboard is a publishing system for thoughts and ideas from around the world all presented in the sky over a building in the East Liberty neighborhood of Pittsburgh. Participating artists, writers and children have included Nina Katchadourian, Steve Lambert, Michael Crowe, Matt Shain, Maude Liotta, Marc Horowitz, Lenka Clayton, Joshua Beckman, Anthony Discenza, and Packard Jennings. The billboard sits on a busy urban throughway and is potentially viewed by over 10,000 people and cars a day.
The Last Billboard is curated by Jon Rubin
