Mary Max

Mary MaxShortly after learning about the horrors of factory farming, animal testing, and the fur industry while having what was supposed to be a causal lunch with Isabella Rossellini in the summer of 2000, Mary Max became a full-time activist. She began her activism by taking on Farm Sanctuary’s No Veal campaign in New York City. She then added to her activism by starting a biweekly e-mail alert service and screening such films as The Witness and Peaceable Kingdom in mainstream theaters. In addition to maintaining her alert service, Mary currently stays busy with lobbying city, state, and federal lawmakers regarding a variety of animal protection laws, implementing a New York State resolution that allows plant-based meals in all New York State schools, and fulfilling her role as a board member of The Humane Society of the U.S., Humane USA-PAC, and The New York Coalition for Healthy School Lunches. Mary also likes taking people vegan food shopping and treating them to their first few bags of cruelty-free groceries!

Peter Max

Peter MaxPeter Max is one of the most successful artists in America today. It was his psychedelic style that first launched his career as an art icon in the '60s and landed him on the cover of Life magazine. Since then, Peter Max has enjoyed an exciting career as a painter for U.S. presidents Carter, Ford, Bush, Reagan, and Clinton and as the Official Artist of the Grammys, the World Cup Soccer Tournament, five Super Bowls, the U.S. Tennis Open, and the NHL All-Star Game. Max's patriotism inspired him to create an annual July 4th tradition of painting the Statue of Liberty, and he personally helped to actualize the statue's restoration. His global vision compelled him to lend his creativity to produce posters for many international events, including the Summit of the Americas, Gorbachev's State of the World Forum, and the United Nations Earth Summit, for which he designed a series of twelve stamps that became the best-selling stamps in U.N. history. His love of the earth and all of its inhabitants shines through in his vibrant colors and themes that affirm life and love. Always an optimist, Max sees a fabulous new age for the new millennium, filled with enormous possibilities. He also sees a need for a greater responsibility to our planet, and he is ever ready to serve as the "Global Artist."
