"As a young child, I was inspired by the art of Peter Max. Winning my first art award at age 5 was a direct result of the impact of the Mr. Max. His strokes of color opening the mind and eyes of a young girl who has admired him her whole life. We do not live our lives to have those same colors diminished as we grow older. Mr. Max is a symbol. A symbol of hope, endurance, free thought, creativity, and self worth. It's long past time the courts give that back to him while he is still with us to share him once against with his family, and the world."

Bruce Braun


Jessica Bleu

"It is an absolute whole being abuse to allow these circumstances to occur, and continue to turn dark the very last years of one who survived such darkness only to bring the entire world such love and color and beauty. It goes beyond inhumane to imprison such an inspired artist away from his tools, which are his voice. From his family and friends which are his muse and inspiration. From the world at large whose servant of love he has been for so very long. Having met this incredibly kind and one of a kind souls, and having been directly influenced in my own artistic style by his from my earliest memories, I am beyond shocked and appalled. I'm downright angry and indignant and oh so very, very sad. Please let this chapter end soon and let the rest of his beatiful book enjoy a happy ending."

Bryan Kennedy

"As this case and Britney Spears case has made clear, the laws of guardianship need to be changed. Assigning a guardian who is a guardian in perpetuity with no oversight by any sort of independent body, only that of the judge that assigned the guardian, is a recipe for abuse (physical, emotional, financial). Transparency currently exists only between the guardian and the court with family and other loved ones being left in the dark."

"Peter was my earliest artistic inspiration and I got to meet him in 1971 at the Merrill Chase ART Gallery in Skokie. I then followed his illustrious career until this nightmare happened. It is so unfair that Peter's mental state is affected as he should be living his life as the exalted artist that he is by giving so much to the people and by coloring our world as he did.

Mark Spiegler

"Peter Max was a major influence on me growing up during the 1960's and '70's. I've often cited his brilliant colors and compositions as one of the top 3 artists that gently nudged my own lifelong path that led me to become an artist and pursue my own love of all things creative and to be socially positive and conscious of each of us recognizing our part in life to be part of the solution, not part of the problem in life and on this earth...Peter showed me that our dreams are valid possible and beautiful. Signing this letter is the least I can do to help him and in my own small way show my support for everything he has given to me in my life. This injustice imprisoning Mr. Max needs to be corrected!!! Peace and Love."

"I am the caretaker for my own 93-year-old mother who is living with Alzheimer's/dementia. Isolation and overmedicating will only accelerate and worsen the condition.

"I met Peter many years ago when I began fundraising for Charities and campaigns. He was always kind enough to allow me to use his studio for private events where he would join as our host and delight our guests with historical stories and talk about his work. Later on he was forgetful and it appeared he was having issues with memory. He always remained kind, diplomatic and loved meeting new fans of his work. Please do not leave him in the care of a conservator, allow his family to care for him and respect his documented wishes."

Christopher Leyva

"Everyone deserves dignity a family, and to be able to die a proper death around those who love him the most, no one deserves to lose their rights no matter how honorable or despicable. Human greed is the misfortune we all have to live with but a man deserves to live his last days in love and warmth and affection which is a human right! And financial abuse is a real problem that happens its bad alone when its family but complete strangers it sickens my stomach after the life this man has lived with so much tragedy let his freedom be the reward and may his soul finally get the peace it has craved."

"This man deserves to have his final days spend with his loved ones and not to be taken advantage of by money hungry attorneys. The legal system is set up to be so convenient for money hungry attorneys and politicians and has no regard for the life of loving, caring souls in this world. Give him his right to life."

Tamra Staab

"The hypocrisy of equating this imprisonment with “care” is egregious! This needs to go to the highest court possible for Mr. Max & his family to live life together peacefully. I can’t believe that a law firm hasn’t pursued this aggressively (and maybe they have) but I’m appalled by and embarrassed it’s happening in our country."

Scott Stevens

Ann Adair

"Please allow Peter Max to live free, and be cared for by the people of his choice, and have access to the protections of the US Constitution. Being imprisoned and isolated due to an Illinois is a punishment no one deserves."
