Forbes Plaza Digital Art Gallery Plans And Installation

Forbes Digital Plaza
In 2014, the OBID will unveil the first installation project for Innovation Oakland, slated to be constructed in the open plaza at the corner of Forbes Avenue and South Bouquet Street in the heart of Oakland’s retail district. The site has been generously donated by the University of Pittsburgh and grant support for the project has been provided by UPMC, Pitt, Carlow University, the Duquesne Light Corporation, the Heinz Endowments and the Richard King Mellon Foundation. As the showpiece for Innovation Oakland, the Forbes Plaza project calls for the construction of a series of elements that have been designed to showcase what a 21st century space will look like.
