Cohen & Grigsby Showcases Work of Local CAPA Students in Firm’s Pittsburgh Art Gallery This Spring
A Collection of Art from Students on Display in Firm’s Pittsburgh Office Starting April
PITTSBURGH, PA – March 26, 2013 – Cohen & Grigsby, a business law firm with headquarters in Pittsburgh, PA and an office in Naples, FL, is pleased to exhibit the work of students from Pittsburgh’s Magnet School for the Creative and Performing Arts (CAPA) in the C&G Gallery this spring. Titled “Tomorrow/Today: The Students of CAPA,” the exhibit features the work of 15 CAPA students. The three-month art exhibit will begin with an invitation-only reception on April 10, 2013 where invited guests will have the opportunity to meet the students and view their works. The reception will take place at the C&G Gallery, located in the reception area of the firm’s Pittsburgh headquarters (EQT Plaza, 625 Liberty Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA).
“Cohen & Grigsby is a proud supporter of the cultural arts in Pittsburgh, and we’re pleased to help foster the talent of some of our region’s young artists by showcasing their works in the C&G Gallery,” said Jack Elliott, president and CEO of Cohen & Grigsby. “This new exhibit allows local CAPA students to show their art to family members, friends and the local community in a unique gallery setting. We hope the exhibit inspires the students to continue pursuing their passion for art.”
“Tomorrow/Today: The Students of CAPA” features the work of 15 CAPA seniors, juniors and sophomores and includes paintings, sculptures and portraits. Located in Downtown Pittsburgh’s Cultural District (111 9th Street Pittsburgh, PA 15222), CAPA offers best-in-class teaching for students in grades 6-12 studying the arts. As a Pittsburgh Public School, CAPA works with local organizations to provide students with a myriad of opportunities to explore the relations between the world of school and the worlds of family and work.
The CAPA exhibit is the latest display of art at the C&G Gallery, which was created when the law firm relocated its offices to Pittsburgh’s Cultural District in 2008. At that time, the firm set aside space within the lobby of the offices for the creation of an art gallery that would give local, regional and international artists a place to showcase their works. The gallery is part of the firm’s ongoing commitment to supporting arts and cultural pursuits in western Pennsylvania. As part of that commitment, Cohen & Grigsby is now in the fifth year of a partnership with the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust as the presenting sponsor of the “Trust Presents” series, which brings a diverse array of entertainment to Pittsburgh’s Cultural District.
The public will have an opportunity to view the CAPA exhibit following the opening reception. To make an appointment, please call 412-297-4900.
