In his lifetime, artist Lumen Martin Winter (1908-1982) completed close to 50 public art projects across the United States, from a giant bas relief at St. Paul the Apostle Church in Manhattan to his famed mosaic murals at the AFL-CIO Building in Washington, DC. This lecture will revisit the life and art of Winter, a native of the Midwest who was trained at the Cleveland School of Art and an active member of the Salmagundi Club who eventually had studios in New Rochelle, New York, and New Mexico.
This talk is germane to anyone involved in the creative endeavor and interested in Romantic Realism.
