Farewell to a cherished pet and one’s childhood

This was such a wonderful tribute to a family pet written by Barbara Brotman of the Chicago Tribune:

LeRoy Neiman 1921-2012 . . . rest in peace

This man was both an amazing artist and a very generous philanthropist.

In May of this year, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago opened the LeRoy Neiman Student Center thanks to a generous gift from LeRoy Neiman and his wife. Mr. Neiman also gave of both his time and talent to a fundraiser the school would hold annually to fund student scholarships. I remember him at a past SAIC BareWalls Fundraiser where he painted one of his Playboy Femlin Pixies. The silent auction of this painting brought in (if I remember right) $7,000.

Rest in peace, LeRoy Neiman. You will be missed . . .
