November 20: 7:00PM – 8:00PM
Peter Max is one of the defining popular artists of the last fifty years. His work with the sixties pop psychedelic art movement proved to be an immense influence on graphic design, illustration, and comics. His work has appeared on postage stamps, airplanes, and in major campaigns for the 1994 World Cup. Now, with The Universe of Peter Max, Peter comes forward to tell the story of his life and work. An intimate visual memoir,The Universe of Peter Max covers Peter's extraordinary career, from his childhood as the son of German refugees to his years as a preeminent artist of the 1960s counterculture, to his continuing work today. Peter reflects on his creative odyssey in this lavishly illustrated volume.
Joining us for the evening will be Victor Zurbel, longtime friend and Creative Director of Peter Max Studio.
