In Tribute to Peter Beard

Peter Beard, a cultural icon and our dear friend has passed on today…

We had the honor to welcome & meet Peter at the IST. Arts and Culture Festival in 2014. The festival’s theme that year centered on “Intercultural Dialogues in Arts & Culture,” a celebration of a “cultural mosaic” – a mix of creative people of different geographical roots, languages, and cultures that co-exist within today’s global society. He was a treasure.

Peter Beard sought freedom, beauty, and ambition in everything he did. Artist, photographer, diarist, naturalist, and writer Beard lived and worked in New York City, Montauk, and Kenya throughout his life. His photographs of Africa, African animals and his genre-bending journals that often integrated his photographs were widely shown and published since the 1960s.

We will miss you, Peter…
