Roving Art Cart

U.S. Sen. Bob Casey visited the Citiparks Roving Art Cart on June 30 during a visit to Pittsburgh.  The GrubUp Food Truck served lunch to 223 children at the Troy Hill Spray Park event.  The Citiparks Roving Art Cart inspired creativity in 300+ youth visiting from Sarah Heinz House, Salvation Army Day Camp-North Side, Aunt Terry's Day Camp, and Saint Sebastian Summer School.
