An image from the 1963 painting 'Parade' by Joseph Sheppard has been installed at Greensburg city hall.

First the gargantuan face of George Washington loomed over Maple Street. Now children are playing on the brick wall of Greensburg City Hall.

The second installment has appeared as part of the Westmoreland Museum of American Art’s plan to feature pieces of its collection all over the city.

The “Art Happens” project began last month when a large image of George Washington was installed on the museum’s loading dock.

The playing children at city hall are a reproduction from the 1963 painting “Parade” by artist Joseph Sheppard.

The museum plans to install 12 temporary works of art, copies from its collection, across the city.

Museum officials say they hope to create a scavenger hunt atmosphere as new and unexpected images start popping up.

The third installation will go up next week at St. Clair Park, according to museum spokeswoman Claire Ertl.
