ReClaim the Route: Junk Collage

GTECH partnered with the Dick’s Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon and Operation Better Block to green-up a vacant lot around the route. On the day of the Marathon, GTECH, Operation Better Block’s Junior Green Corps and the Pittsburgh Center for Creative Reuse will set up a space adjacent to Homewood’s water station at North Lang Avenue and Frankstown Road. With help, we collected “junk” to be incorporated into a work of art throughout the day. Like a paint-by-number project, the pieces will be assembled to create a large collage for everyone in the race to experience. Many helped in the assembly, including Junior Green Corps members, staff and volunteers from the organizations, and Marathon spectators and participants.
