Oakland’s Forbes Digital Plaza

About the Plaza

In 2015, Innovation Oakland unveiled it’s first project: the Forbes Digital Plaza. This premiere pedestrian plaza is located in the heart of Pittsburgh’s 2nd largest business district located at the corner of Forbes Avenue and S. Bouquet Street and is a new approach to public space and community branding. The Forbes Digital Plaza is an outdoor digital art gallery designed to display local, national and international artists as well as community news. To learn more about the Forbes Digital Plaza and stay up-to-date on current artwork and events happenings at the space, visit: forbesplaza.org.
