Love, Aspinwall

Acrylic Paint on Masonry, 2022

This community engaged mural, designed and led by artist Alison Zapata, is inspired by the question “What do you love about Aspinwall?”

Aspinwall Neighbors and The Borough of Aspinwall selected the mural site as a result of the draft comprehensive plan created from community feedback. We hope to see more public art installed throughout Aspinwall, connecting our vibrant business districts and beautiful recreational areas through inspired art and shared experiences. If you’d like to be a part of future public art projects, please email

Public art adds a tremendous amount of value to the cultural, economic and aesthetic values of a community. It is well-documented that public art contributes positively to a community’s sense of pride and identity, and enhances the quality of life for the residents.
