Pittsburgh’s public hand wash stations mix well being and artwork

You’ve probably improved your hand washing game over the past year, but it doesn’t have to stop after you’ve left your home.

Hand washing stations on the north coast of Pittsburgh are available for public use as the first project of the Pittsburgh Creative Corps, a collaboration between Riverlife and the Office of Public Art that is part of a COVID-19 response initiative.

These stations are not only functional, but also works of art. Three illustrators and cartoonists have been selected to add visual storytelling to the hand-washing kiosks. The combination of dedicated artistic and community health resources creates outstanding amenities along the Allegheny River.
