Featured here is a colorful painting I created as an everlasting tribute to Fred Rogers and one of Pittsburgh's enduring treasures. Rogers became famous and a television icon when he created, hosted and composed the music for Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood. The popular educational television series was launched from the WQED studios in February, 1968. Mr. Rogers received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, Lifetime Achievement Emmy Award, Peabody Award and numerous honorary degrees throughout his lifetime. He was inducted into the Television Hall of Fame and one of his trademark sweaters is displayed in the Smithsonian Institution as a treasure of American history. His legacy and the lessons he left us will continue to capture the hearts and imaginations of children for generations to come.
