  • We really didn't know what to expect - but we really enjoyed our time in Randyland. We smiled the whole time. We visited in the winter, with severWal inches of snow on the ground. Set against the grey...  more »
  • Visiting Randyland is hard to explain. We didn't know what to expect but we are very glad we went. We were able to meet Randy and speak with him for a few minutes. Seeing all of the art he has created...  more »
  • It's a super cute backyard of the artist. He is always around and smiling. A short visit if you want to hop over from the National Aviary. Loved their international 'welcome' wall.  more »

  • I love this place! Randy is happiness! His joy and love are totally expressed through his art and dedication to his neighborhood. He has created a space full of eye-candy to hang out and enjoy or just pop in to check it out. If you're lucky to catch Randy there, you're in for a treat! He is the nicest, most welcoming person I've ever met.
  • Pretty cool gem in Pittsburgh. Very eclectic, unique items placed all over. Read the story of Randy's life. Turn his sad young self into a creative happy mind to share with the world. Make sure to stop by when you are in Pittsburgh. Lots of cool pics to take.
  • The first time I visited Randyland, I had just moved to Pittsburgh and had never heard of it. I was walking around my neighborhood and welcomed by Randy himself. He was painting some trim with flamboyant colors and patterns. He invited me to walk around the space while he told me that he really loves color and turning trash into something amazing. So he built this space to bring joy to the area by painting everything. He has been working as a waiter while building this over the years. He said he works to do what he loves :)
  • I sorta weird wonderful colorful place. I guess this guy made his yard a work of "art" It's super colorful and makes a good background for pics. It was free but you could donate some money .. we did because i enjoyed it.
  • I have never seen a place so full of crazy love and creativity. What a joy to be here. This is a stop everyone should make when visiting (or living in) Pittsburgh. Quirky, folksy, colorful, creative and inspiring...impossible to be unhappy here. What a gift has been given to this neighborhood and city.
