PETER MAX PAYS TRIBUTE TO PITTSBUGH’S NATIVE SON ANDY WARHOL

Posted on May 6, 2022 in Pennsylvania Pittsburgh Pa

Celebrating the Pop Art Movement,  Music and Artistic Vision:
Limited Engagement – May 7th through May 15th, 2022

With paintings on exhibition in hundreds of museums and galleries worldwide, Peter Max and his vibrant colors have become part of the fabric of contemporary culture. Max has been successively called a Pop Icon, Neo Fauvist, Abstract Expressionist, and the United States “Painter Laureate.”
The artist has had the distinct honor of painting the last seven Presidents of the United States and the world’s best loved celebrities, among them the young sensation Taylor Swift and the amazing talents of “The Voice”

The artist has had the distinct honor of being named the Official Artist of the Grammys,  Super Bowl, World Cup Soccer
and the Official Artist of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.  An ardent Environmentalist, Peter Max has been at the forefront of
Environmental Preservation efforts for over five decades.

The First Environmental U.S. Postage Stamp

As Max’s poster art is associated with the spirit of ecology, the U.S. Postal Service commissions the artist to create the first ten-cent postage stamp commemorating Expo ’74 World’s Fair in Spokane, Washington. Max uses the line, “Preserve the Environment.”
“Throughout the years, I have painted so many beautiful, beautiful, imaginative musicians: Mick Jagger, Sting, The Beatles, David Bowie, Duke Ellington, Frank Sinatra, Pharrell Williams, Quincy Jones, Michael Jackson, Elton John, Jon Bon Jovi, Yes, Phil Collins, Gwen Stefani, Steven Tyler, Aretha Franklin, Norah Jones, Taylor Swift, Blake Shelton, Adam Levine and so many others. It’s mind-blowing when I think about it. I love great music and the amazingly talented people that make it.”      Peter Max

“I really love my hand-painted Fender Telecaster guitars in this exhibition. I’ve painted some of my most iconic images on them: my Angel with Heart, Lady Liberty, my hearts, and a homage to da Vinci’s Mona Lisa. They’re colorful and unique. Guitar players and collectors tell me how much they love them”.  Peter Max

Max’s “Be In” Love poster inspires several hundred thousand hippies to gather in New York City’s Central Park and immortalize the Summer of Love.

Pittsburgh Plumbing Services Available Now

Posted on July 28, 2021 in 2021 Back To School Gift Guide

I want to start by saying, “I love Restano”.  It’s been on my radar for a while now.  The Pittsburgh-based company is the best at what they do.  I’ve been going to them for a while now, and every time, I’m more satisfied with their work.  The Pittsburgh Plumbing Service is the Bomb!  There’s no better company to get your services from.  They take pride in their work.

You could try Home Depot, or even Lowes, for this kind of thing, but why not go to a Pittsburgh Plumbing Service company, if you are in the area.  Restano will be your go-to company all the time, once you use them.  You’ll be so satisfied you won’t want to go to anyone else.

Heating, Cooling and Plumbing all in one place.  It’s a great feeling when you can get everything done at one time.  You will not regret using this company for all of these needs.  My Uncle just had Heating/Cooling changed in his home, using Restano, and so far, he’s never been more pleased.  But the plumbing is the GREATEST of their assets, you really want to use them in the future.

Plumbing in Pittsburgh

Posted on May 5, 2021 in 2021 Dads And Grads Gift Guide Reviews

Restano is a great company, that has been working in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania for over 30 years.  We love Restano!  The company has a great reputation, and is the definition of “Plumbing In Pittsburgh“.

On the website, you can request a quote, etc.  There is so much to see and do through their site, including HVAC.  But, plumbing is a great asset with them.

I love plumbing around Pittsburgh, because Restano is the best company.  Their workers are so polite, and work their hardest to get the quality for you that you deserve.

They have 5 locations, all throughout Pittsburgh.  Take a look at their page, to find out where.

 

You can also visit Lowes if you’d like to do your own plumbing, but I would stick with Restano.  Lowes, you have to fix yourself, with all the experience Restano has, they’ll have it fixed in no time.

Home Depot is another place you can get your plumbing needs.  But, again, you’d have to fix the issue.

The best thing to do, is call Restano, at above link, and let them do the work.  It’ll save you time, and money.

Sangawa Project is an adult anime convention (18+) run by the Pittsburgh Japanese Culture Society. This convention allows anime fans to meet a couple of their favorite voice actors, cosplay, play some games in the gaming room, and attend some panels. The best part of it all is the mature environment surrounding the convention!

This year, Sangawa brought Colleen Clinkenbeard, who plays Ema Hinata in Brothers Conflict, Momo Yaoyorozu in My Hero Academia, Riza Hawkeye in Fullmetal Alchemist, and many more! They also brought Rob McCollum, who plays Reiner in Attack on Titan, Shinya Kogami in Psycho-Pass, Mifune in Soul Eater, and many more!

Sangawa Project also held a couple alcohol events for the 21+ audience that came, including the Taste of Japan and the Sangawa Social. The Taste of Japan is where you can enjoy a selection of Japanese alcoholic drinks and learn the basics to tasting. The drinks they had this year were: Awa Yuki Sparkling Sake, Plum Fu Ki, Yoshi No Gawa Junmai Ginjo Sake, Hibiki Suntory Whiskey, Hana Lychee Flavored Sake, and Sakemoto Premium Junmai Sake. The Sangawa Social is a place to just hangout or to participate in a recipe challenge.

There was also an Exhibition Hall where you could buy all the anime merch you could want. They played different anime during the weekend in the video room, some being One Punch Man and Food Wars.
