Ticket to Culture About the Design
Young people do appreciate the city’s cultural offerings, this Tyrannosaurus rex says in a big way. Students from Shaler Area High School designed “Ticket-saurus” and covered him with stubs from live theater, symphony concerts, ballet performances, museums and art galleries in the Pittsburgh Cultural District and throughout the region. The school’s National Art Honor Society students coordinated the project and created the look of swirling scales on the dino by varying the colors and design of the tickets.

Pittsburgh's “Ticket to Culture" has been a popular attraction at the Shaler North Hills Library in Glenshaw. He is ready to move to his next venue to help promSold!ote the arts in Pittsburgh.
