Artist Wants to Give People a New View of an Urban Stream

From The Allegheny Front

The Allegheny Front recently talked with artist Ginger Brooks Takahashi about her Nine Mile Run Viewfinder, a project of the Environment, Health, and Public Art initiative with OPA. Brooks Takahashi has spent the past year working with Upstream Pittsburgh (formerly Nine Mile Run Watershed Association) on developing a project that draws attention to the connections between Nine Mile Run, the stormwater and sewer systems, the Monongahela River, and the water we drink. The artwork advocates for a healthy watershed in eastern Pittsburgh and neighboring communities.
