Everyday Heroes • NYC at NYC Fire Museum

A collection of around 15 pieces of original artwork by contemporary impressionist artist Alexander Millar, which honour the valor and bravery of the New York City firefighters. Original artwork in oil and in pencil as well as some selected limited edition prints will be exhibited and available to purchase.

Alexander Millar is critically acclaimed for his depictions of industrial cities of the United Kingdom, his work is strongly influenced by the working men and women of the late 19th and 20th century. His subject matter combined with his impressionistic, impasto style has seen him described as JMW Turner meets LS Lowry.

In Everyday Heroes • NYC, Millar has applied his trademark style and interpretation to the men and women of the New York City Fire Department. Taking inspiration from archive material from the New York City Fire Museum, including photographs of the 18th, 19th and 20th century firefighter Millar has created a collection of portraits and cityscapes that marry a respect, a humor and a warmth for the everyday heroes of the city.

Working in partnership with the Vulcan Society, Millar has also been keen to demonstrate the diversity of those who protect and serve the city, including a commemorative portrait in oil of Wesley A. Williams, the man who became the first black lieutenant in the New York City Fire Department; which Millar will present to the Vulcan Society.
