Artist Leslie Ansley worked with the Community Builders of East Liberty on a project for the East Liberty Place South new housing project. The project site was to be a gateway to the neighborhood, a welcoming beacon. Ansley created a vibrant painting that was transformed into metal signage that lights up in the evening. The bold painting was inspired by the surrounding community.
Upon completion of the project, Ansley was invited by the Community Builders to design artwork for the East Liberty Place South community room.
Leslie Ansley is a Pittsburgh-based painter. Her work has been shown at the African-American Museum in Philadelphia, the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago, the National Black Arts Festival in Atlanta, and the Three Rivers Arts Festival in Pittsburgh.
