"It makes me very sad to think he is spending his last days imprisoned after bringing so much joy to people through his work."
As a fellow artist and human, my heart goes out to someone who is isolated from their family and their loved ones.
Heart breaking despicable treatment.

We collect his art and believe he should be with family.
Peter Max Collector
My admiration for Mr. Max's works goes back to my childhood. I currently collect them and I am sickened, angered, and saddened. Set him free!
I adore his artwork and he’s a great inspiration.
Peter Max is an idol of mine. I met him several years ago and cherish that memory. He deserves happiness and comfort during his last years with us.
Been a fan of Peter since 1967, unbelievable price to pay for bringing joy into our lives.
Peter's work has inspired and brought pleasure to us all.
"Peter Max has been the high point of my life. My mother collected his paintings and has met him on numerous occasions."
Peter Max and his daughter Libra Max have been my friends for 40 years. It is horrible to know that Peter is in such poor health and being kept from his children who love him. Please help!
My grandma had dementia and I’d hate to think of her going through this. I also am a fan of Peter’s pro-American work.
Support for one of the finest artists of our time, his family and loved ones.
This great man deserves to be in the care of his loving family.

Corruption is evil. Drain the swamp in our courts!!!!!!!
These conditions are appalling.
Fan of Peter and pissed off that they are doing this to him. He needs to be with his family.
What is being done to Peter is heartbreaking and enraging. It is clear and obvious abuse for the sake of money. Absolutely dispicable. I pray for the Max family and Peter's freedom.
Peter Max needs to be with his family, his art, his cats he is a human being and needs compassion.
This is wrong and inhumane! It needs to stop now!!!
James Sweeney Sweeney
Should have his family near him and taking care of him!
This is heartbreaking and should be stopped immediately.
I am a collector of his beautiful art!
My uncle was a collector of Peter’s art. I am lucky to have some of that after his passing. His art is a message of love and freedom. No one should be stripped of their rights.
I love and respect the man and his work.
This man must be saved immediately and those who have held him captive must go to jail!!!!!!
I spent an evening speaking with Peter Max in Pittsburgh during hurricane Ivan. I was always a fan, but he made me feel like a friend.
This is inhumane.
Allow him to live out his life with loved ones.
This is unthinkable!
Nobody should be without their family in their last days.
To help preserve his human rights.
Begging for his advocation!
The system is broken and these leeches need to be cut out. Free Perer Max!!!
Standing up for Peter and his rights.
Costume Designer, Art Lover, Elder Care Advocate
These restrictive guardianships are life robbing. A person should be able to control his own life.
Someone help reunite Peter with his daughter and end the forced legal constraints against him. This is unfair and inhumane.

This good man deserves advocacy from people who don't stand to gain from his misfortune.
To free iconic vegan artist Peter Max from incomprehensibly evil predators.
Vickie L Smith
Capitalizing on the wealth and misfortune of the elderly is wrong.
Save Peter Max.
Because this is unjust! Mr. Max is being abused and robbed by an evil lawyer and B.S. conservativeship. Criminal!
Met Peter a few years ago and this breaks my heart to hear he is suffering so.
Peter Max is an inspiration.
Tyler A. Chase

Don't believe this type of control should be allowed.
This man is being taken advantage of!!! Greedy government should not be allowed to have any say in this matter!!!
Free Peter Max from this abusive 'guardianship' and to live a free life.
Inhumane treatment of the is great artist. family should be his guardians. what they are doing is just making his illness worse. How dare they do this!
This should not be happening. Free this man to his family
Peter Max needs his freedom.
Supporter of freedom.
Because this amazing human deserves to be treated as such.
I love Peter and want him to be in good hands.
Nothing more important than treating our elders with respect.
There is absolutely no reason Peter Max should not see his daughter & his friends or have pets and live freely! Stop this now!
Free Peter Max and give his dignity and his rights!

Free Peter Max!<3
Demanding the release of Peter Max back to the care of his daughter Libra.
Abuse of the System
End this abusive guardianship! Allow Mr. Max to live his life as he desires.
Our legal system is disgusting.
Love his paintings and cannot see him suffering and not allowing his family to see him!
I was raised in a house filled with Peter Max art. Ironically, my dad’s name was Peter and my mom’s name was Maxine.
Research Specialist, Fan
Shocking abuse of human rights.
He should be able to see his family, and let them decide on the best care for him, not a profiting lawyer who is abusing him and draining his estate. This is criminal.
Inhumane. Free him!
Love his work, personally experience with cognitive elderly issues and want to help.
Peter Max is my favorite artist who has brought untold beauty throughout the decades. He deserves nothing less than that at this end stage of his life!
I am sympathetic towards Libras because my mother Daisy Silver has been a ward of my sibling who has been my mothers guardian for eleven years too long . She has taken advantage of our mothers disability and has not acted in her best interest. FREE DAISY SILVER AND PETER MAX FROM THEIR ABUSIVE GUARDIANS.
FREE PETER MAX.
Free Peter Max.

"A heartbreaking injustice."
Clearly government overreach.
It seems not fair to hold such an old man.
Peter Max should be surrounded by love and everything which will lift his spirits - this is every human being's right! I am praying that his guardianship will end soon.

"Peter Max’s family should have control of they’re dads medical directive."
Actor, fan of Peter Max
"I had the pleasure of meeting Peter Maxon numerous occasions at the Wentworth Gallery in Boca Raton Florida over the years. He was such a kind person always taking time to come out of the gallery and speaking with his fans just like an average guy."
Peter took our young son’s health to heart when he was dealing with the repercussions of chemo and surgeries. He counseled and shared valuable resources.
As someone who is the caretaker of a loved one with Alzheimer’s, the stress and shut out of Peter’s family will make the disease advance faster. He deserves to be happy in a confusing, gut-wrenching time of his life that no one deserves to ever go through, let alone a gifted genius of our time that we are ever so lucky to have shared this planet with during our time.
National Account Manager
"Peter Max deserves to be able to spend his final years in the company of his family."

Peter deserves to live out his best end of life. He has done so much for the world.
This news is heartbreaking!
I love his art. I believe he should be with his family.
This is theft by the state and must be stopped.
He needs to live the balance of his life in peace.
I'm a fan/collector of Peter Max who also cared for, with my family, my mother who suffered from Alzheimer's as well as dementia. I can't imagine someone having to suffer through that without family that they made clear they wanted to be there.
Anne Elizabeth Lapointe
This is unacceptable treatment for a man who contributed so much to the art world and society.
"Release him to his family and friends that will care for him and protect him. He deserves better than this!"
No one should ever be held against their will in their own home with no means of communicating with their friends and loved ones. This is fundamentally wrong and should be stopped right now.
No one should be in a toxic guardianship when loving friends and family are willing and able to take care of their needs.
This treatment should not be allowed!
Owner of Peter Max Works
Always admired and own some of his work.
Appreciate his artwork.
Family should come first.
I believe he is not being treated fairly and can not defend himself.
Arabella Luna Friedland
One of my favorite artists..terrible that this has been allowed to happen.
The treatment of Peter Max is inhumane and harmful to his health and mental well-being.
My mother, Marjorie Fister, was forced into a guardianship in New York with some of the exact same lawyers that are holding Peter Max hostage.
This abuse of guardianship is heinous, evil and unjustifiable.
Releasing him from custody of these monsters is the ONLY right answer.
Had the honor of meeting Peter are few years ago, he was amazing. No one deserves to be treated this way. He deserves to be with his family and where he wants to be.
FREE PETER !!!!! This is unbelievable. Give the guy the respect he deserves.
Set him free.

Give Peter back to his family.
I am a huge fan of Peter Max and the art he creates, to hear this breaks my heart, he should be with his loved ones. Sending love.
I’m tired of the way seniors are treated.
Stop elder abuse.
It should be the family’s decision.
No one deserves that treatment.

Return Peter Max' human rights.
He doesn't deserve what is happening to him!
Peter max inspired me in my artwork years and years ago. I am completely opposed to predatory conservatorships and this needs to end. Please free Peter Max!
Admirer in support of Peter and his family.
Common decency requires that a person be allowed to pass in dignity with their family, and care of our elders means transparency, empathy and kindness at all levels.
His art gives off such love and joy, and it's not right he is in the middle of all this darkness.
I love Peter's work. I named my cat after Mr. Max. He needs to be free of this predatory conservorship.
I've loved Peter's art since I was a teenager and his work was an inspiration to my own pursuit of art. I hate hearing that he's being being mistreated. Please help this great man and his loved ones.
Susan Ross, RN

I love Peter Max and no one deserves this.
Peter should be in the care of his family, not a guardianship.
I love Peter Max's art, and it upsets to hear about his unfair treatment.
Free Peter Max!!!!!
He brought me joy, and color and hope....
Let him have his life back.
Peter Max is a National and World treasure. His guardianship should be controlled by his loved ones. Free Peter Max.
Peter Max is my favorite living artist. His art work makes me smile. He and his family deserve to smile and be with one another. The people who are abusing him should be prosecuted.
Peter’s final wishes are being ignored and his most fundamental Constitutional and Human Rights violated.
This happens far too often - taking advantage of the vulnerable to make money off them. FREE PETER MAX love from a Peter Max fan for 40 years.
This is abuse. My father was taken advantage of in his dealing years and his family could do nothing to stop it.
Because Peter Max’s rights are being violated!
Longtime admirer of Peter Max and his art. People with dementia need contact with their loved ones, and deserve to be treated with dignity.
Peter belongs with his daughter whom I've had the privilege to have met a few years ago at an art show where she accompanied her beloved father Peter. You could see the love and respect they had for one another.
Greed is disgusting.
Sasha Charnin Morrison
Free Peter Max, give him his freedom!
Because Peter Max is being abused and isolated from friends and loved ones. I hate to see people get abused by vultures in this manner. His daughter says he's being abused and I believe her.
Long-time Fan of Peter Max’s Artwork
One of my favorite artists and he should be free
Everyone deserves to be cared for with love!
He should have a family member appointed as gaurdian.
No one should be treated like this!
Absolute violation of human rights.
I am deeply disturbed by this treatment of Peter and wish to see a change to restore his dignity and allow him to have a life in allignment with his beliefs and the things that bring him happiness.
Lauren Porsch, Ph.D

Peter is an amazing person and artist. Peter Max deserves to have free will.
Nobody should face this level of cruelty.

This is so wrong, let him live out his life with family.
Guardianship is modern slavery in USA. My mother died under temporary guardianship having 5 living children.
Owner, Art and Coin TV
Undo this guardianship and let Peter be around his family and friends.
It is criminal the way these guardians take advantage of their charges as well as the families.
Peter Max is an icon and knowing him and his family for 23 years, we know what a great human being he is; my family always remembers his amazing personality, kindness, and unmistakable smile.
This is inhumane!
This is unconstitutional, this man has a right to to decide how he spends his money and to live a happy life with his family.
Anti elderly abuse!
This is so wrong.
Advocate for Elder Rights, Peter Max Fan and Art Collector
I met Peter at a National Art Education Association Conference. He is a national treasure. Please put him in the care of his family.
i want an end this cruelty.
This is so wrong! Nobody should be treated this way! Let Peter be with his Family.
Peter Max should be with his family and rescue cats. This is horribly cruel.
Stop exploiting Peter Max and all the animals he protects!!!
Family first, the man needs the dignity that only his closest family can give.
His family wants to care for him. He wants his family to care for him. That’s all I need to know.
Nobody in the USA should be treated like Peter Max is being treated.
Fan of the Artist
This artist should be with family that love and support him.
This man has brought joy to millions of people through his art. He deserves to enjoy the fruits of his labour as he wishes, with family/friends.
My father’s company was in the same building as Peter Max’ studio. He described him as a kind, caring person and he enjoyed chatting with him on the elevator or in the lobby. He doesn’t deserve this.
Billy Birke Birke
If you let this go and this man passes in his guardians care, than you have totally failed him, and we are failing as a country. Make things right. Max needs his family, he needs his autonomy, and he needs those filthy guardians hands off of his estate. Make it right.
"Free this man! He should not be a prisoner! Liberty!"
I met Mr Max at an art gallery in GA as I always loved his work. His eyes lit up when I raved about his work!!
No one should live this way nor should they ever experience something so traumatic. Let him be with his family.
Unfair exploitation sucks!!
I strongly oppose the unjust retention of a brilliant artist like Peter Max.
No one should be held captive, and not allowing his family to be his guardian is insane.
I am a huge fan of Peter Max, and my grandmother had Alzheimer's for years. She went through similar problems (albeit smaller scale) up until the last 3 years of her life. Let Peter Max go and be with family. He earned his money and he should choose who is in control of it.
Should NOT be a 3rd party in charge!
He should be able to choose his guardian, not be forced to accept an appointed one.
Free Peter Max from unjust guardianship and isolation.
I support ending conservatorship and giving back human rights, civil rights.
This man deserves to be with his family and it appears to me that the court has overstepped their boundaries. Let this man live his life.
Holding Peter when he had family that wants to take care of him isn't right. Let him live the rest of his life with his loved ones.
Restrictive guardianships that isolate are morally wrong.
Free Peter Max!!!!!!
Peter Max has been my favorite artist for many years!
Peter Max Collector
This is not the America we all want to live in, no one should be treated like this and all the things they love taken away, justice needs to step in now.
We have 6 Peter Max works and love them. When we were on the cruise ship we were introduced to his works and fell in love with them. We also got to hear a lot of his life story."
As an artist Peter has been an inspiration & brought joy to millions through his art. It infuriates, bewilders, & saddens me that he is being imprisoned by a corrupt legal system that cares more about lining their own pockets rather than Peter's wellbeing.
Retired Civil Servant and Artist
He’s my favorite artist.
Fan of Peter Max and Daughter of Dementia Sufferer
Court appointed guardianship is a nightmare scenario for families, and a cash cow for aggressive opportunists who care only for money. These people are devoid of humanity. The laws that allow this to happen need to be changed."
Peter should be with his family.
This is guardianship abuse.

Freedom and dignity to Max.
Peter Max deserves freedom.
Appalled at the atrocious treatment and blatant abuse of the court 's power. Free Mr. Max!!! He has suffered far too much at the hands of others evil abuse of corruption and power.
Forcing Peter Max to suffer isolated from his loved ones and his animal companions and financial exploitation is an injustice on his human rights.

Elder care in this country is a disgrace. Peter Max brought and continues to bring joy to the world and to me. I want his final days to be filled with love and kindness with those who love him most.
I grew up admiring his brilliant work. No one should have this happen to them.
If an artist wants to express him or herself, he or she should be able to do that without constraint, physical or chemical; without surveillance and with the freedom by which to cognize on the colorful emotions of life, and of dying, as well as to put those colors into a format by which to communicate the journey, fearlessly and with the support of whomever he or she wishes to be around.
This is horrifying! So glad Britney was freed. Give this elder back to his people!
He deserves better.
Restore his dignity.
Compassion for the Artist.
This is abuse and the system is failing so many when they should be properly cared for.

Peter Max is an icon in the 20th century world of art! How can he be mistreated? Free him to his rightful family.
Allow this man to live the rest of his life surrounded by his family and friends and with his dignity intact.
Peter Max should be with his daughter, not with the strangers who are exploiting him for financial gain. This is just cruel and inhumane.
I have witnessed this same scenario play out with a well known Miami artist and his predatory lawyer. Please intervene in this matter and end the predatory guardianship.

Deprivation under color of law via guardianship corruption is illegal.
This is elder abuse.
Please free Peter from this forced guardianship.

Peter Max should have his family or those who know and love him be his guardian.
He is being held against his and his family's wishes.

I met Peter Max at Nassau County Museum of Art years ago. It isn't right to treat anyone like this and keep him from his family and friends.
I met Peter in 1986 and from the first meeting, everytime I saw him he always remembered my name. I am handicapped and at one time offered to find me doctors to see if they could help. A very wonderful, caring human being. He deserves so much better!

Friend of Rosie Vela; Admirer of Peter's art
I would love for this man to just enjoy his life and not have crap like this ruining his life.
No person should be put in a guardianship against their will or knowledge this is inhumane and hurtful and disrespectful to family that cares for Max.
