Pittsburgh Roars

The Pittsburgh Roars! campaign gets underway today. While I'm usually skeptical of these civic psychology initiatives, this one actually sounds like a lot of fun. For example, what could be better than making silly inflatables out of the dinosaurs that dominate Pittsburgh? And take a look at the list of Pittsburgh Roars! partners. Can you spot the missing giants?

who are the missing "giants"?

i did notice that no one -- not the pittsburghroars website, the sproutfund website, or the post-gazette articles -- includes a list of the dozen-or-so artists who did the creative work on the inflatables

If you know or know of the artists involved, post their names and/or links to their portfolios in the Comments, and I can put them into a new post.

If you know or know of the artists involved...
I don't because there's no way to find out, except maybe to call Sprout and have them dictate the information over the phone. It's just ridiculous that there are 30 or 40 partner art institutions, and all this money and staff time being spent on Pgh Roars, and they can't credit or even list the artists.

They must have changed the website since you visited it. The artist names are attached to the spec sheets for each inflatable. Right next to the title of each one.
