By: KDKA-TV News Staff

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- A new art installation that was unveiled on Saturday calls attention to an historic site in Troy Hill.

The eight-foot-tall cast iron bronze plaque was unveiled along Lowrie Street on Saturday.

The artists, Lenka Clayton and Phillip Andrew Lewis, say their permanent public artwork was inspired by the original bronze plaque outside of their studio commemorating the city's first incline transportation.
