The Pittsburgh Carrick High School student Art Show is hung and waiting for the Monday opening reception at 5:30.
Anyone who works in this magnificent building will get a sneak peek during the day. There were ten of us working most of the day Saturday to hang the art and place the tags by each piece.
Awards ceremony is Monday evening at 6:30 PM. Sponsored by CITIPARKS!

How about those Tiffany columns? The marble, the windows, the painted ceiling? And all the student artwork? Wow!

I can’t wait for the students to see their artwork on display in such a wonderful setting.

Penguin Fans Watch Stanley Cup Playoffs on Giant TV

The roads blocked off, I didn’t want to get out and walk around. Steve drove us down after dinner at Grant Ave Bar in Millvale.  We watched it on the TV in the bar as we ate.  The mood was festive. Penguins beat the Canadiens 6-3 Just wanted to check out the scene.

Giant TV downtown at Mellon Arena. People actually have a plaid couch. Streets closed.

Night starting to fall. Shot out of Steve's window from the passenger seat while at a red light.
