Peter Max: Early Paintings

Selections from the Casterline Family Collection and the Fireman Family Collection

The Museum Re-Opens April 7th with the 2018 Special Exhibit, Peter Max: Early Paintings! Join us for Gallery Walks led by Bethel Woods Museum Director and Senior Curator Wade Lawrence at 12:00pm, 2:00pm & 4:00pm.


The art of Peter Max helped define the psychedelic 1960s, with its colorful imagery of gurus, sages, runners, flyers, Zen boats, snow-capped mountains, planets, stars, and sunbeams. His Cosmic posters were found in every college dorm room and in major museums across the globe.

Peter Max has stayed in the public eye through five decades, but visitors to The Museum at Bethel Woods will have a rare opportunity to see inspiring artwork from a pivital moment in the artist's illustrious career: the period from 1967 through 1972 when his work moved from nostalgic collage-inspired realistic paintings to his visionary, imaginative Cosmic creations.

Peter Max: Early Paintings brings together for the first time the collections of Robert Casterline and Shelly Fireman for a Peter Max experience that should not be missed. The exhibit will be on display through December 31st. 


Support for Peter Max: Early Paintings is provided by Bethel Woods Center for the Arts members and donors. General support for The Museum at Bethel Woods is provided by members and donors and by Lazy Pond Bed and Breakfast and Rolling V Bus Corporation. "Doors to Originality," a Peter Max-inspired exhibit to open June 2 on the grounds of Bethel Woods has been generously funded by Robyn Gerry.
