Artist Randy Gilson welcomes the people of Pittsburgh and tourists to visit his unique, colorful courtyard, known as The Mexican War Streets Historic District of Pittsburgh's north side. It is open almost every day 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. However, it may close during the winter depending on the weather. The brightly colored home functions as a studio for other like-minded artists.

There is so much to see here. Karen Duquette would love to spend a full day here just taking close-ups of all the colorful, unique and exciting items. But there was not enough time for that to actually happen.
