Untitled Mural at Fulton Theater


Richard Haas is well known for giving flat surfaces a three-dimensional appearance. This 36 by 56 foot mural was painted in the trompe l'oeil method, which translates from French to "foot-the-eye." The artist integrated real windows and doors of the theater into the mural, which presents a stage where Pittsburgh's steel legacy is depicted. The performance is a steel mill interior, where furnaces are pouring hot metal.

Installed, 1993
