SOUTHFIELD, Mich., Oct. 13, 2015 – Park West Gallery, known for fine art auctions on cruise ships, live art auctions in major metropolitan areas and art galleries in Detroit and Miami Lakes, Florida, announces that artist Dominic Pangborn is the artist for the White House Fellows 50th anniversary.

Pangborn, a world-renowned artist based in Detroit, has created art to commemorate the anniversary of the White House Fellows Program, America’s most prestigious leadership program. His work will be unveiled at the White House Fellows 2015 Leadership Conference Oct. 22-23.

“I am very proud to design and contribute my work to honor the White House Fellows, who for 50 years have served presidents, Washington leaders, as well as provided leadership throughout the country in all fields,” Pangborn says.

The artwork will also be displayed at a gala dinner held at the National Portraits Gallery in Washington, D.C. on Oct. 24. Pangborn, described as an evolutionist and Renaissance man, is known for his diverse art and design as well as his civic and philanthropic work.

“As a son of Michigan, I am proud that a local has created such impressive work for this occasion,” said Jim Padilla, White House Fellow alumnus and former President of Ford Motor Company. “In Michigan, Pangborn is well-known as the ‘tie guy’ with business leaders making statements wearing his designs.”

The White House Fellows Program was founded in 1964 by President Lyndon Johnson and John W. Gardner, recruiting the nation’s best and brightest talent to provide first-hand experience working in the federal government.

“We thank Dominic Pangborn, one of the world’s greatest living artists, for his striking art piece as well as creating White House Fellows Leadership ties and scarves,” says Carolyn Chin, CEO of Cebiz, White House Fellow alumna and corporate board director.

Pangborn joins fellow Park West artist Peter Max in the ranks of contributors to the White House Fellows. Max contributed art for the White House Fellows 30th Anniversary.
