In Appreciation of an American Artist: The Legacy of Lumen Martin Winter
Presented by Alexander Katlan
Monday, June 4 / 11am to 12pm

Lumen Martin Winter was an important American artist for more than 50 years, creating major murals at the United Nations in NYC, the AFL-CIO Building in Washington, DC, St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church by Lincoln Center, several US Post Offices and much, much more. He even designed the official logo for NASA’s Apollo XIII. His fine art portfolio included colorful landscapes, abstract art, and mosaic works. Winter was a long time member of the Salmagundi Club and a signature member of the American Watercolor Society.

Join Alexander Katlan, renowned art conservator and art collector, to hear an exciting presentation about this artist's career and accomplishments. Mr. Katlan recognized the importance of Winter's work and is now presenting it to the art world for re-appraisal 35 years after Winter's death with hopes of bringing renewed light and appreciation of the artist's role in American art history. In 2015, he worked extensively with Long Island Museum in Stony Brook to produce a major retrospective of the artist accompanied by a catalog. This lecture will entertain and enlighten as he explains the journey as it continues from the artist's lifetime to the collector's goal of creating a legacy.
