Irrgang's rendition is a vibrant watercolor painting of the Heinz Memorial Chapel. Her illustration of Heinz Chapel is framed by close-ups of stone, metal and wood architectural aspects of this magnificent building. Irrgang is a former staff member in Pitt’s Computing Services and Systems Development office and a Pitt alum three times over.
About the Artist
"Taking a drawing class was a requirement for my design degree. I thought it was a waste of everyone’s time since I couldn’t draw. I actually told them no thank you but I still had to take it. Little did I know, I was teachable and ended up loving it. Recently I have been able to spend more time painting and have concentrated on my love of the buildings on campus. I hope you enjoy Cathedral of Learning, Pitt Stadium Memories and Pennsylvania Hall Memories. I’ll be adding to the collection so look for those too!"
Our Heinz Memorial Chapel collection features the work of many local artists as well as limited edition items.
