Brian McCall

A PORPUCINE IN PITTSBURGH! is a solo exhibition by Greensburg based artist Brian McCall. McCall captures landmarks of Pittsburgh with his lively watercolor illustrations and pairs them with his signature polystrylene sculptures, depicting wild animals indigenous to regions far from Western PA.

After a brief stint playing for the Chicago White Sox, McCall attended California College of Arts to pursue a career in art and has done numerous covers for the Washington Post Magazine and other publications. McCall's sculptures appear in the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh and have been installed in many restaurants in the Washington D.C./Virginia area and Chicago. He and his wife live in Greensburg in an old church that they renovated (their "chouse"), with plenty of space in which to work. CHIZ has represented McCall

since 2005. Click on the image above to go to his CHIZ exhibit page.
