Bicentennial Banners

20Robert_Wiegand ROBERT WIEGAND
In the Pink

Wiegand’s exuberant abstract banner is playfully titled to pun on the banner’s ground color and the idea of optimism and well being in a Bicentennial context. A painter whose works have been widely shown since the late fifties, the artist is perhaps best known for his “City Walls” –the large urban outdoor murals which he was one of the first artists to develop, in the late sixties. His work has been shown at most of the major museums in New York. His murals have been commissioned by both public and private institutions and by such corporations as Lever Brothers and the Reliance federal Savings Bank. His paintings are in many private and public collections.

Wiegand was born in Mineola, New York, in 1934. He attended the State University of New York and the Albright Art School at Buffalo. He died in 1994
