World renowned artist, Peter Max Named Good Will Ambassador to SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES

News Release | March 27, 2013

Peter Max, one of the world’s most famous living artists is recognized as Good Will Ambassador to WFLF’s SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES, the nation’s voice for the protection of equines from cruelty. Max seeks to raise awareness and funds to aid in the protection and preservation of America’s wild and domestic horses from cruelty by donating the proceeds of commissioned portraits, to the Wild for Life Foundation.

 “When the powerful and brilliant exposé, SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES, came  to NYC, I learned that thousands of healthy vibrant horses are disappearing and suffering from criminal animal cruelty," said Max. "This exposé has everything it takes to educate, engage and empower the public to effect social change but distribution is extremely expensive. Volunteers are working around the clock to break the cycle of animal cruelty for America’s horses and they need our help,” Max said.

“We are honored to welcome and recognize Peter Max for his passionate and invaluable support for SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES. As a Good Will Ambassador Max’s voice will undoubtedly speak to the heart of America and give strength to a more united effort in the protection of America's horses from gruesome slaughter,” said Katia Louise, President of WFLF’s Saving America’s Horses Initiative.

“I am so thankful that my art can be used to help save America’s horses from cruelty,” added Max. “I am sincerely proud to be a part of this great movie and I encourage others to support this important effort.”

The work of iconic American artist, Peter Max has spanned virtually every medium. His vibrant color palette and multi-colored brushstrokes have been applied to his commissioned portraits of many of the world's most famous and influential people: Presidents Carter, Reagan and Clinton, Mikhail Gorbachev, the Dalai Lama, Nelson Mandela, Willie Nelson, Larry King and numerous celebrities in the world of sports and entertainment. "Max's portraits compose a Who's Who of contemporary power and culture," states Charles A. Riley, II, author of The Art of Peter Max. His work can be found in over 40 international museums, numerous private collections and over 50 galleries, worldwide.

SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES is an educational feature documentary film under Wild for Life Foundation (WFLF), the nonprofit, all-volunteer organization that’s leading educational efforts for animal protection, and WFLF relies 100 percent on tax deductible donations.
