The Phantastimagical ramp of Professor Pittsburgh

Roll Rampant in Pittsburgh

Apparently there was a phantastamagical Roll Rampant and Free skate art ramp installation as part of the 2005 Three Rivers Arts Festival in Pittsburgh, and only one person seems to have documented it, artist Maya Hayuk. Not True. I just found some more. Artist Ali Calis did, and so did the curator, the Harry Krishna Groupe. Every city needs one of these.

– Thanks to Sarib Singh Khalsa for the tip.
