Cohen & Grigsby Art Exhibition Features Worldwide Focus of Pittsburgh Photographer as City Plays Host to G20 Summit
PITTSBURGH, PA – September 8, 2009 – Cohen & Grigsby, a business law firm with headquarters in Pittsburgh, PA and offices in Naples and Bonita Springs, FL, will celebrate Pittsburgh’s hosting of the G20 Summit with an exhibition featuring the work of photographer John Bauerlein, whose images present moments of awe from exotic locales as far away as Antarctica and as near as the rolling hills of western Pennsylvania. Titled “Journey,” the exhibition will feature photographs that reflect upon notions of beauty, diversity and adventure. “Journey” is now on display at Cohen & Grigsby’s downtown Pittsburgh offices (625 Liberty Avenue).
“With the focus of the world on Pittsburgh during the G20 Summit, this new exhibition presented by Cohen & Grigsby is intended to place the incredible beauty of our region amongst that of exotic locales worldwide,” said Kaveri Subbarao, chief marketing officer and attorney at law. “We want to celebrate our city’s role in the global marketplace by showcasing moments of universal beauty caught by the lens of a dedicated Pittsburgher and world traveler. The result is John’s impressive ‘Journey’ collection.”
Cohen & Grigsby’s unique gallery space in the heart of Pittsburgh’s vibrant Cultural District enables the firm to support the arts community by featuring talented artists from the region. For Pittsburgh to thrive as a hub for business and commerce, Cohen & Grigsby believes it is vital to create a nurturing environment where artistic and cultural pursuits can flourish.
When it re-established its headquarters in the Cultural District last fall, the firm forged a partnership with the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust by becoming the Presenting Sponsor of the 2008-09 “Trust Presents” series, a collaboration that further enhances the firm’s dedication to the arts in Pittsburgh. “Trust Presents” brings a diverse array of entertainment to the Cultural District. The 2008-09 playbill boasted nearly 20 performances at both the Byham Theater and the Benedum Center, including appearances by Lily Tomlin, the National Acrobats of China, and David Sedaris.
“Pittsburgh’s economic engine has many drivers, and at Cohen & Grigsby, we believe the arts are one of them,” said Jack Elliott, president and CEO of Cohen & Grigsby. “We are pleased to play an important role in the city’s cultural scene by sponsoring cultural events and serving as the host venue for a variety of exhibitions throughout the year.”
