Robot Repair Shop Art Installation Could Be Coming To Pittsburgh Airport

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – If you’ve spent much time downtown, you may remember the “Fraley’s Robot Repair” art installation on 6th Street.

The faux storefront was a favorite for locals and visitors in the Cultural District, with its various repair parts strewn about and robot looking out through the window.

Well, after closing shop in 2012, the installation could make a return at the Pittsburgh International Airport.

A Kickstarter to fund the new airport art installation has been set up and has already met its goal of $10,000.

As of Friday morning, the campaign has raised $10,381 with 19 days still left to raise money.

According to the Kickstarter page, the new robot repair shop will be located in Concourse A. Creator Toby Fraley says he’s already been in communication with the Airport Authority.
