MUHAMMAD AND LEROY: A FRIENDSHIP IN ART DIGITAL EXHIBIT
In recognition of Muhammad Ali and LeRoy Neiman’s longstanding friendship, and to commemorate what would have been Mr. Neiman’s 100th birthday on June 8th, the Center will launch a digital exhibit on that day. Many around the world remember LeRoy’s brilliantly colored expressionist artwork—from athletes to musicians, and sporting events, such as the Kentucky Derby. The digital exhibit will highlight artwork created by both Ali and Neiman and feature candid photographs and notes written by LeRoy. The majority of the artwork was donated to the Ali Center by the LeRoy Neiman Foundation in 2017, and others on loan from the Foundation.
