Remembering LeRoy Neiman

World renowned artist, LeRoy Neiman, was best known for his brilliantly colored, stunningly energetic images of sporting events and leisure activities. We knew him for his generosity, his passion for sharing the arts with the next generation, and for his commitment to supporting service in the arts within urban communities across America. It has been through Mr. Neiman’s extraordinary vision and on-going support that Arts Horizons was able to open the LeRoy Neiman Art Center in Harlem, providing children, schools, service organizations and the community-at-large with free and affordable visual arts programming and exhibition opportunities. Words cannot express our gratitude and affection towards him for making the LeRoy Neiman Art Center a reality and for continuing to nurture it so it could become a wonderful place where beautiful art is created within the Harlem Community. Mr. Neiman was not only a generous man, but a warm and caring spirit who brought his passion for creating art to everyone who knew him. We are deeply saddened by this loss, but honored to continue his legacy through the creative, cross-generational work we are doing here at the Neiman Center. Please join us in remembering and celebrating his life, everyday!
