Cohen & Grigsby Reaffirms Support of Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, Renews Partnership for Fifth Consecutive Year
Firm is Presenting Sponsor for “Trust Presents” Series
PITTSBURGH, PA – October 15, 2012 – Cohen & Grigsby, a business law firm with headquarters in Pittsburgh, PA and an office in Naples, FL, has reaffirmed its continued support of the arts in the Pittsburgh region by renewing its partnership with the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust for the fifth consecutive year. As part of the partnership, the firm will serve as the Presenting Sponsor of the 2012-13 “Trust Presents” series, a programming division of the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust that offers a diverse array of entertainment – from live music and comedy to literary and world-famous artists.
“A vibrant and active arts community is critical to maintaining downtown Pittsburgh as a preferred place to live, work and play,” said Jack Elliott, president and CEO of Cohen & Grigsby. “We’re proud to support Pittsburgh’s dynamic arts community, and our continued partnership with the Trust reaffirms our commitment to ensuring that Pittsburgh’s Cultural District remains a premier attraction for art and entertainment.”
The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion and development of Pittsburgh’s downtown Cultural District. The 2012-13 edition of the “Trust Presents” series includes more than 15 performances at both the Byham Theater and the Benedum Center downtown. Performances include music by Esperanza Spalding, comedy by Sandra Bernhard, dance by Slask Song and Dance Ensemble of Poland, and a special holiday show featuring TLC’s “Cake Boss” Buddy Valastro.
When Cohen & Grigsby re-established its Pittsburgh headquarters in the city’s Cultural District several years ago, the firm made another tangible commitment to the arts community. The firm’s offices (EQT Plaza, 625 Liberty Avenue, Pittsburgh) house an art gallery that has become a dedicated space for local artists to showcase their work to the public. This fall, the gallery will showcase the broad portfolio of nationally renowned, award-winning photojournalist Harry Benson. This three month exhibit opened to the public on October 12, 2012.
