This week, as fans honored Muhammad Ali in Louisville, Kentucky as a boxing legend, human rights activist, and as a religious figure, a few others were preparing to honor him in New York City as a visual artist. Ali was the son of a painter from Louisville, Kentucky, and that creative spirit lived on in a series of works created by the boxer. The simplicity of Ali's artwork reflects his personality and his faith, in visual form. It invites us to embrace religious tolerance --- in his unique and simplistic way. Just in time for Father's Day, limited edition prints of Muhammad Ali's work will be included in the RoGallery's June 15 auction in New York City!
