TWYGA: The Blog

Artist Genevieve Barbee is creating 800 portraits of individuals and their talents. She asks each person one question: "What are you good at?". She's had a lot of different responses...

Adam Paul Cosgrove is Good at Raising Money for Excellent Causes

So far in this project I’ve known most of the people that have wound up on this blog. Not that it’s a bad thing but each post begins with me typing, “I know XX person via XX thing.” I then have to erase it because it would be super duper awful if I started every post this way. 

The thing is, I’ve known Cossie for a really long time. When I stop to think about it… he’s one of the first adults I met when I kinda of officially became an adult after college. He worked at Gene’s Place for a period of time and even then he was great at talking with people, making them feel welcome, and organizing things. It wasn’t a stretch when he started to organize the Tail-GREAT and working with the Steel City Beard and Mustache Club.

I’ve attended a few of the events that he’s thrown and he wasn’t kidding when he said how chill and cheerful they are.
