About the Downtown Now Photography Project: The Heinz Endowments invited nine photographers to participate in a three-year project to document the changing culture and sites of Downtown Pittsburgh. Of the thousands of photographs that they submitted during this time frame, more than 400 were chosen to be included in a permanent archive. We view this body of work as one of lasting historical and artistic significance and intend to make it available to the public as appropriate.

Additional photography is available. If you do not see the exact shot you are looking for, please contact Shannon Wolfgang for further assistance.
