PITTSBURGH INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF FIRSTS

THE RUBBER DUCK

Over a million admirers flocked to Point State Park in downtown Pittsburgh for a glimpse of the city’s world-famous Rubber Duck inflatable sculpture.

The 40-foot rubber duck, the brainbird of Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman that has been floating in the Allegheny River just off of Point State Park the past few weeks, flew out-of-town at 11 p.m. Sunday, October 20th after the Steelers beat the Ravens.

About the Pittsburgh International Festival of Firsts: This year’s Pittsburgh International Festival of Firsts (September 27-October 26) features companies and artists representing a vast array of countries from The Netherlands, Quebec, Belgium, Australia, Switzerland and Nova Scotia as well as the United States. The Festival, a project of the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, offers an eclectic mix of theater, dance, puppetry, music and visual arts handpicked from around the world.
