Peter Max: From Pop Art Prince to Human Rights Prisoner.

This article is a review of the fine art and life of artist Peter Max, as well as the pressing human rights issues brought to the foreground by his recent guardianship legal case. I had the good fortune to conduct an interview with Max’s daughter, Libra Max, the central force behind the #FreePeterMax campaign; Bruce Nahin, J.D. and motion picture producer; and Charles A. Riley, Ph.D, author of The Art of Peter Max and director of the Nassau County Museum of Art, excerpts of which are featured here.
