First National Bank, the largest subsidiary of F.N.B. Corporation (NYSE: FNB), is partnering with a Sewickley Borough gallery and Sweetwater Center for the Arts to support local artists and improve youth access to the arts.
FNB is teaming with Mark Rengers Gallery to transform the space above the Bank’s branch at 604 Beaver Street into the First National Bank Exhibition Hall, a place for artists to showcase their work and for local nonprofits to teach young children and others about the arts.
Through a collaboration with Sweetwater, Pittsburgh Public Schools students have been invited to visit the space as part of the Youth Arts Possibilities Program (YAPP), which enables children and teens to learn about and engage in contemporary arts through tours, conversations with artists, hands-on activities and developing their own portfolios.
“We are honored to play a role in increasing opportunities for students from across the region, including those who otherwise may not have an opportunity to experience art education in this format,” said Vincent J. Delie, Jr., Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of F.N.B Corporation and First National Bank. “Access to the arts inspires creativity, builds confidence and enriches students’ overall education.”
Earlier in December, FNB also sponsored Sweetwater Center for the Arts’ annual Holiday Market for the second consecutive year and served as the presenting sponsor for Sewickley Light Up Night.
