Reintroducing Morris Katz - Holocaust Survivor, Artist, and American Icon
|Date||Thu, Jul 8, 6:00pm - 7:00pm|
Join 3GNY on Thursday, July 8th, at 6PM CST to celebrate the life and artistic accomplishments of painter Morris Katz - Guinness World Record holder, human rights activist, and immeasurable talent, including a special presentation of his collection of presidential portraits.
Morris Katz (1932-2010) was a Holocaust survivor who came to the USA as a refugee and turned the art world upside down with his astonishing talent and his mission to make his paintings accessible to "average people."
Nicknamed the "Einstein of Art," Morris replaced Pablo Picasso as the Guinness World Record holder for most prolific artist. Morris was a highly respected painter whose pieces were displayed in over 100 museums and galleries worldwide, including the Smithsonian and the Vatican.
In partnership with the Morris Katz Foundation and the Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce.
