PostBulletin.com features two Pittsburgh artists who have become a part of their neighborhood by transforming their turf into works of art. "Like other urban areas, Pittsburgh artists moved into dicey pockets of the city seeking larger spaces for their studios. In doing so, they became modern pioneers, transforming the districts into more livable and attractive areas.

Such artists include James Simon, a sculptor and a mover and shaker behind the 'Art on Gist Street Project.'" Featured also is Randy of Randyland located in the Northside.
