Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Laurel Region brought their own art exhibit when they hosted the Jan. 13 Art on Tap happy hour in The Westmoreland Museum of American Art.

Lining a hallway near the Greensburg museum’s community room were T-shirts with art created by a group of little brothers and sisters served by the organization.

The shirts were part of a self-actualization project done in conjunction with the Seton Hill University communications program, in which the kids explored who they are and who they want to be, along with what makes them proud and what makes them special.

The shirts boasted colorful designs of people, favorite objects and even fantastical beasts and inspirational messages like, “Seahawks are better than your team!”

Wait … what?!

Anyway, there was also the monthly art scavenger hunt, light bites from Elegant Catering, beer from All Saints Brewing Co. and music (including a few folks singing along) with Gary Stewart.

Museum director/CEO Judy O’Toole circulated in the crowd, while hubby Kevin O’Toole took a shift behind the bar.

Representing Big Brothers Big Sisters were Executive Director Kelli Belanger, along with Becky Coccia, Megan Ansell and Laurie Sarady.

Seen: Gene andJanet James, Claire Ertl, Charlene Bidula, Anita Manoli, Eric andRenee Dadey, Jessica Wuslich, Tricia Betta, Wendy Hager, Jessyca Olkowski andNicholas Pcsolar, Amber Kalp, Heather Olbeter, Karyn Curry andPaul Johnson, Jim andJane Nescot, Michael andFaerie DiFranco, Jim andCarolyn Morford, Patsy Iezzi andBob, Tracy andKatherine Marschik.
