     Born Peter Max Finkelstein on October 19, 1937, who became and who is a pop culture icon as well as a household name not only for his “Cosmic 60s” art, style and many more achievements, but probably not as publicly reported, is he an environmentalist and defender of human and animal rights.

     Several years ago, Max offered to provide a full life for a cow that escaped from an Ohio slaughterhouse. Cinci Freedom leaped over a six-foot fence while the workers were on break and was on the run for eleven days before captured. “This little girl’s will, facing the end of her life, being so frightened, then taking the risk of all risks to live, to be free; touched me so deeply,” said Peter. To guarantee ‘Cinci’ a long peaceful life at the Farm Sanctuary in Watkins, New York, he donated $180,000 worth of his art to benefit the local Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. “It was so inspiring. I knew I had to try to preserve that wonderful spirit.”
