That this could happen in the modern world is appalling. Peter Max is an icon and those leaching off of his work are the most evil of evils.

If we can free Britney Spears, we can free Peter Max!

Catherine Zachariah

As someone who has dealt with loss, the memories made before it are crucial for both the one who is lost, and the loved ones of that person. Grief is all of the unexpressed love showing itself after the passing of a loved one. What is happening to Peter Max, and others facing this conservatory abuse, is inhumane, and we cannot remain complicit to this hatred being spread.

Annie Sutton

I’m 75 years old and what Peter Max is living through is my idea of senior hell. If Mr. Max has dementia of some form, that is all the more reason for him to be surrounded by familiar people and objects. Willem de Kooning continued to paint brilliantly in spite of advanced Alzheimer’s. To deprive an artist of Mr. Max’s ability and vision of access to his studio and creative tools is cruel, to say the least. To deprive him of his family is monstrously inhumane. Free Peter Max!

This is gross civil rights violation. This man was denied due process, the inherent rights of family, the right to enjoy the fruits of his labors...the list goes on and on.

"Abuse of the elderly is severely underreported, even though they are particularly vulnerable. The public can't just keep pretending like it's not happening everywhere, all the time. This man actually has family and friends that wish to care for him, unlike a lot of others. Only a corrupt and greedy system would deny him that comfort in the final years of his life! These "guardians" seem like absolute predators and the lawyers and judges overseeing everything are even worse. I hope so badly this ends as quickly as possible. Everyone participating in this "guardianship" should be in prison!"

I have followed his work and have met him a few years ago and he is still able to produce and address the back of his works to his buyers.

I have loved and followed Peter's career since the 70's. I recently stayed with my mother who fought Alzheimer's for 5 years. I can not imagine someone taking over her life at the time and not allowing me to be by her side. There just is not reason. Please think about time lost for this man, for his family. This is a horribly lonely disease. Why would you take everything this man loved from him? His cats were healing and his art studio and children could bring him back at moments. Just seems so cruel.

Denise Lamb

I inherited some of his paintings from my father. What a wonderful artistic man. Let him live out his life in peace with his family and friends surrounding him. It's his money! He can spend it how he wants without some strangers approval. It's truly frightening to see this happening, if it can happen to him it can happen to anyone. Free Peter!

Jessica Boucher Beamish

"Peter Max was my entrance to art in 1968. His works of art are as dear to me as anything I hold dear. His genius, generosity and survival should be celebrated in his older age. I have seen first hand what people do when a person's memory begins to fade. I have watched lawyers, judges and accountants prey on those who once trusted them with their life's work. There is no shortage of greed and evil in this world. A free and creative spirit like Peter Max should have the love of friends, family and ANIMALS! Taking away this man's rescue cats is cruel and abusive and a sure fire way to shorten his life. Get the horrific guardians out of his life before he hasn't a dime. Outrageous."

Kim Harvey

Korin Luikart

Having worked with Alzheimer’s patients I know for a fact that they need to be with their family they need to see their family daily no matter what their memory loss is and how deep it is or how far gone they are they still come to light when they see a family member something clicks and obviously Peter Max is cognitive that this is his daughter and the person who’s keeping him away from her is obviously financially abusing him and this needs to end.

Peter is my favorite artist. This sickens me as this should not happen to such a great man. Please serve justice to him and restore his dignity. He does not deserve this.

Peter Max is literally my favorite artist, and I wouldn't wish that kind of treatment on my worst enemy. Peter Max deserves much better for all of his accomplishments and endeavors in life. Not to mention all of the charities that Peter Max had given to in his life to better the people not only through profits but in the art world as well.

END THIS NIGHTMARE FOR PETER MAX.

Sandra Baksys

My father was isolated from me the last seven years of his life by someone who took him to her home after misappropriating his power of attorney. Ownership of domicile and power of attorney are also powerful tools of elder isolation.

An artist inspired by Peter Max, I believe he deserves to be with his family and loved ones, no one deserves a conservatorship especially if they have family to love and care for them.

I had the privilege to take a van load of my students to meet Peter Max at his studio in 2001, from Girard College where I teach. He was very gracious, taking his time to talk with my high school students, showing them where he creates his work, and he even took the time to explain to my students proper care of paint brushes and so forth. Not many people would do that. Max is a treasure. We should all be grateful that he is still alive, and he should be able to live out the rest of his days surrounded by those who he loves, doing what he wants to do!

Crystal Weaver

Peter Max has brought joy to so many through his art over the years and does not deserve this treatment. Please let him live out his remaining years peacefully with his family.

To not only remove a person’s dignity, but to also position them to be repeatedly victimized, is some of the cruelest behavior of man against man. Restore his rights and dignity immediately.

Roseann DiGiovanni

I come from a very large close knit family & losing my Dad a year ago I cannot imagine not be able to see my Dad. My sisters & I all married took turns sleeping at my Parent's house to help my Mom care for our Dad. We allowed everyone to see our Father anytime they wish & to deny someone access to their loved one is a total disgrace!!! Wtf are lawyers even involved with this family matter to begin with!!!! And, to deny family matter the right to spend time with their family member is criminal & these attorneys should be “locked Up” for imprisonment of a human being!!! This case should be plastered all over the News & this man needs to be released to his family immediately w/o being monitored by “Lawyer's maybe we should do this to the lawyers family & see how they like it!!!

I consider myself to be a friend of Max's. He's a very sweet and loving man. He loves seeing his fans. Isolation is pandemonium to torture. Please help him to live out the rest of life with dignity.

"I am a glass artist who has been inspired by Peter's work my while life. I was born in 1966, so his images were some of the first things I recognized as art. As an aging human, the very fact of his condition of life is concerning. People should be with their loved ones in their last days."
