Immediate Action Required - respectful but immediate path to petition the City of Pittsburgh and Allegheny County, to preserve an important artwork, located and painted on the top of the Tenth Street Bridge entering the South Side neighborhood of Pittsburgh. The Tenth Street Bridge is currently undergoing complete restoration and repainting. Unless immediate steps are taken to save this significant artwork, the piece will be repainted in a matter of days.
The artwork, 10th Street Geese: has been in place for some 20 years, has been documented, and recorded as part of Pittsburgh's landscape. The painting is understood to be an important landmark, specific to Pittsburgh's image of revitalization. By preserving the artwork, and it's symbolic gesture of resilience and the spirit of the local arts community, the City of Pittsburgh will be once again be recognized for its commitment to public art and expression.
Please see this effort to support and recognize the value in keeping the 10th Street Geese in place by not removing or repainting over the artwork.

Friends of Geese
Your words have been heard, and are they ever great!!!
The Geese paintings atop the 10th Street Bridge will inevitable be painted over, probably this week. However, there still remains the smallest sliver of possibility that Allegheny County will allow the Geese paintings to be restored and repainted!
Please consider sharing this petition, and contacting: Allegheny County, Executive office:
