Since the exhibition Dedicated to all Defenders of Human Freedoms. The Art of Paul Peter Piech opened in October 2016, the response to the incredible work of Paul Peter Piech, graphic artist and radical printmaker has been overwhelming. Born in New York in 1920, Piech was stationed in the UK during World War II, and remained there for the rest of his life. Piech's influences were many, not least politics and equality, through to jazz and poetry. His print making was both infused with the desire to reflect the world back on itself, and to demonstrate the power of passion and art.
The People's History Museum would like to make Piech one of our Radical Heroes, and we need your help. Please pledge whatever you can and support the People's History Museum. We tell the story of how radical people and their 'ideas worth fighting for' have brought about changes in our lives over the past 200 years; without our museum, these stories would be lost.
