Inspired by the men and women of the New York Fire Department, exhibited in New York City in April 2018.
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 humour 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 of the New York City Fire Department; which Millar will present to the Vulcan Society on April 3rd.
Everyday Heroes • NYC will be exhibited at the New York City Fire Museum from April 3rd, after which it will move onto a pop-up Millar Fine Art Gallery in Soho, New York.
