Have yinz seen the new mural in Etna? Painted on the mural is one of the greatest musicians to come from Pittsburgh. Yinz heard the song The Spins or have been to the Blue Slide Park in Frick Park, right?
If yinz guessed correctly, it’s… Mac Miller!
The mural symbolizes his life in different eras. The artist chose to paint Mac in various points in his life, all the way until his last photo shoot before he died. If you look at the mural closely, you will see the Roberto Clemente bridge in it, which has been found on several of Mac’s album covers. Mac Miller’s music was not only inspirational to young teens/young adults, but he incorporated a ton of Pittsburgh references like Kennywood, The Pittsburgh Pirates, Fifth Ave, Frick Market, etc. With that being said, Pittsburgh was very close to Mac Miller’s heart. He was proud to be a part of the 412! The mural is painted on the side of ID Labs, in the town of Etna, which is about 10-12 minutes outside the city of Pittsburgh. The artist chose to paint the mural in Etna because Mac Miller used to record some of his music in this area. How cool is that?! If you are interested, be sure to check out this incredible mural.
