Hard Rock Hotel Features Peter Max

The new Hard Rock Hotel & Casino opens in Atlantic City next Thursday, June 28 and along with it, a new Wentworth Gallery featuring iconic pop artist, Peter Max’s rock-and-roll works. Max is schedule for an appearance at the gallery himself on July 7.

Over his decades-long career, Peter Max has been connected to the world of rock through collaborations and friendships, painting portraits of famous rock icons, including The Beatles, Bono, Sting, Jimi Hendrix, Chrissie Hynde, Ringo Starr and many more. He’s been a 5-time official artist for The GRAMMYs and commissioned as the official artist for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s 30th anniversary in 2015.

His love of rock and free expression also led him to play a large role in the history-making rock concert that helped end the Cold War, as the official artist and designer for the “Moscow Music Peace Festival”. The ground-breaking festival, known as the “Russian Woodstock,” had famous ’80’s glam metal rockers Bon Jovi, Mötley Crüe, Skid Row, Ozzy Osbourne among others, all playing on the stage designed by Max.

These Peter Max hand-painted guitars will be available to purchase at the gallery:

About Peter Max

Acclaimed for his bold, cosmic art that captured the spirit of the ’60s and ’70s and for his colorful, expressionist paintings that he creates to this day including portraits and celebrity commissions, Max has been the official artist for six GRAMMY Awards, five Super Bowls, the NHL All-Star Game, the U.S. Winter Olympics, World Cup USA, the Indy 500, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, NBC’s ‘The Voice’ singing show and many other notable events in sports, global initiatives and music.

Peter Max captured the zeitgeist of the psychedelic ’60s youth movement with his cosmic paintings, posters, serigraphs and popular licensed products– GE art clocks, bed sheets, Wrangler clothing, stockings and high-top sneakers, among many others. Over his five-decades long career, with gallery and museum shows around the world, the now 80-year-old Max is an icon of pop art, neo-expressionism and is often called ‘America’s Painter Laureate.’

His portraits have honored U.S. Presidents, foreign dignitaries, rock stars and jazz musicians, movie stars and sports icons. Max’s impressive resume goes far beyond his world-famous bold, colorful artwork, as he is acknowledged for his global charity work – being an active environmentalist and defender of animal and human rights, and for helping to bring yoga to the United States by co-founding the Integral Yoga Institute with Swami Satchidinada.
