Max Gallery welcomes Peter Max

This is a blast from the past.

On May 15, 2010, Peter Max was in the Grove for an art event. I was reminded of the story by this by a friend. The story appeared in the Grapevine the next day, May 16, 2010.

I remember the night of the event, I went to cover the event, I walked in early and Peter Max was standing there. I went up to him, introduced myself and asked to take his photo. He told me no! I said, "Well I brought half the people here tonight through the Grapevine, so I'm taking your picture!" And he demurely agreed and got Roy Black to pose with him.

It was a great night in the Grove, really fun and the whole town came out.
