Fraley's Robot Repair



This whimsical store appeared in downtown Pittsburgh on November 18th. The sign on the door says the owners are on vacation, but that just covers the fact that this is an art installation by Toby Atticus Fraley.
The installation is part of the "Pop Up Pittsburgh" project designed to brighten vacant storefronts in downtown Pittsburgh. Along with a warmly lit inviting interior there are also a couple of animatronic robots giving some movement and interest to the installation.  It will have a year long run at 210 6th St.



See lots more pictures and read about the fictional repair shop's services at the "business" website. Link -Thanks, Toby!

I've always thought landlords should allow art stuff like this to happen, just to keep their buildings from looking run-down.

One of the best artist in tri-state area, by far. So detailed. It's always fun, makes a lot of people smile. God knows this world needs more of that.... Go Toby
