This graphic biography was created as a tribute to Murray Levy (1936-1990), who passed away from an AIDS related illness. A social activist who combined his art and politics, Levy acted with the Free Southern Theater in the 1960s, the Vermont-based Bread and Puppet Theater in the 1970s, and the Dragon Dance Theatre in the 1980s. The linocuts were designed by Sam Kerson, co-founder of the Dragon Dance Theatre and printed by Brian Cohen at Bridge Press. For more information on his theater see:
