Lost PittsburghAbout the Design
Where are they now? People and places from our city’s past come to life on this dinosaur. Newspaper stories and photos remind us of downtown buildings, neighborhood spots, historic events, and sports heroes, all of which helped to shape Pittsburgh into what it is today. This dinosaur prompts more than a little conversation among people of all ages.

Shirley Yee, director of graphic design at The Art Institute of PittSold!sburgh, led the project in conjunction with several artists from the school. Students affectionately call this Stegosaurus “Lola.” She is a dinosaur with stories well seasoned by the passing of time.
