Agnes R. Katz Plaza
The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust’s Agnes R. Katz Plaza is arguably one of the city’s most recognizable and lovely sites. Drawing inspiration from Pittsburgh’s rising topography, the late, famed American artist and sculptor Louise Bourgeois created the 25-foot bronze fountain centerpiece of this 23,000 square foot public plaza. The sculpture is notable as the largest public art commission by Bourgeois. Agnes R. Katz Plaza was a creative collaboration between Bourgeois, landscape architect Daniel Urban Kiley, Theater Square’s architect Michael Graves and the Trust. Katz Plaza was named in loving memory of Agnes. R. Katz by her children.

The park is programmed by the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust’s Department of Education and Community Outreach with free JazzLive performances each Tuesday at 5pm during the summer months and occasionally showcases live entertainment for special events such as the Three Rivers Arts Festival and First Night Pittsburgh.
