Along with Martin Luther King Jr., Vietnam, Kent State, Jimi Hendrix and the Beatles, Peter Max's artwork is synonymous with the 1960s. The artist's fluid, outrageously colorful work defined the psychedelic look of the time. Max will be in Atlanta on Saturday, June 23, from 6-9 p.m. for an exhibition of his work at Wentworth Gallery in Perimeter Mall.
Astronomy: "I've always loved astronomy since I was a kid ... that is what used to blow my mind, just the idea of anything to do with outer space, where we're from, where we're going."
iPods: "I have in my drawer maybe 15 iPods; Nanos and regular ones and thin ones and thick ones. When I'm painting I've got my iPod in my breast pocket of my shirt and I've got the earpiece in my ears and I'm painting away. It's a constant companion."
Music: "If I had not been an astronomer or an artist I would have probably had a record company; I would have been like David Geffen. I listen to everything from Incubus to classic rock. The last 10 days I've been listening to Led Zeppelin."
www.audible.com: "[Audible] is unbelievable. Owned by Don Katz. Out of such enthusiasm I called him up and we bonded. He's got everything in the world on it: tens of thousands of titles including 1,700 magazines so if there's any magazine you love, you just go there, go to the table of contents, pick each article you're interested in ... and then you walk away and you're listening to the articles. What an amazing time we're living in."
Summer of Love: Art of the Psychedelic Era, Whitney Museum of American Art (through Sept. 16): "It's beautiful. I've got a piece in it. And after having gone to that show, it so got me back to that psychedelic period."
Wired: "I love magazines that are into contemporary culture and Internet culture, statistics, where we're going."
Al Gore: "I'm very, very interested in whatever Al Gore's doing. He has sparked an interest in talking about the environment ... whether it's green buildings, or new kinds of fuels, solar paneling."
Candle Cafe, NYC (www.candlecafe.com): "I'm 68, but if you saw me you'd think I'm 45. That's because I've been a vegan for eight years. My wife and I walk every night two miles from this vegan restaurant home. I eat there about four times a week. Something about being a vegan; it's life-prolonging."
www.drfuhrman.com: "I discovered him about four years ago. He is a vegan doctor."
