Don't Miss The Harry Grant Show @ Be Galleries

The images and more info about the Harry Grant show @ Be galleries are finally up.

There's a wonderful balance between tight control and playful improvisation that runs through these works, which also are quite painterly.Harry obviously has a highly tuned design and color sense.

One is reminded very much early baroque music and great jazz performance, with Harry riffing and improvising from set compositions.

Really a must see show.

“Harry Grant (aka Henry Grant) (1922- ) is a life-long resident of Pittsburgh. He was graduated with a degree in architecture from Carnegie Institute of Technology (Carnegie Mellon University) in 1947.

He has designed numerous buildings including the former Westinghouse Energy Center in Monroeville, the new Canonsburg hospital and the west wing of the Westmoreland Museum of American Art in Greensburg. He has painted throughout his architectural career, and his art works are included in several private and corporate collections. In 1999 he was one of nine artists selected to celebrate the Fortieth Anniversary Invitational at the Westmoreland Museum of American Art.

Harry Grant has retired from the practice of Architecture but has continued to work on his other art.”

All proceeds benefit the Paul E. Mochnick and Harry B. Grant Fund for the Visual and Performing Arts at the Pittsburgh Foundation

The show ends Saturday, September 26Th.

Refresh this page to see various historical events that occurred during Paul's lifetime.

In 1930, in the year that Paul Mochnick was born, as head of the Motion Picture Producers and Distributors of America, William Hays established a code of decency that outlined what was acceptable in films. The public - and government - had felt that films in the '20's had become increasingly risque and that the behavior of its stars was becoming scandalous. Laws were being passed. In response, the heads of the movie studios adopted a voluntary "code", hoping to head off legislation. The first part of the code prohibited "lowering the moral standards of those who see it", called for depictions of the "correct standards of life", and forbade a picture from showing any sort of ridicule towards a law or "creating sympathy for its violation". The second part dealt with particular behavior in film such as homosexuality, the use of specific curse words, and miscegenation.

In 1949, at the age of 19 years old, Paul was alive when on April 4th, NATO (the North Atlantic Treaty Organization) was established. Twelve nations originally signed the North Atlantic Treaty - the United States, Great Britain, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Denmark, Italy, Luxembourg, Norway, Iceland, Canada, and Portugal. Greece, Turkey, and West Germany later joined. Today, there are 26 nations in NATO.

In 1977, when he was 47 years old, on January 21st, President Carter pardoned "draft dodgers" - men who avoided the draft during the Vietnam War. He fulfilled a campaign promise with the pardon. But it only applied to civilian evaders - the estimated 500,000 to 1 million active-duty personnel who went AWOL were not included.

In 1981, at the age of 51 years old, Paul was alive when on August 1st, MTV debuted. It was the first music video TV channel. The first music video played was the Buggles' "Video Killed the Radio Star" - the second was Pat Benatar's "You Better Run".

In 1995, in the year of Paul Mochnick's passing, on October 16th, the Million Man March took place on the National Mall in Washington DC. The March was organized to address "the ills of black communities and call for unity and revitalization of African American communities". An estimated 850,000 people attended.
