Peter Berg, one of Rochester’s most beloved artists, graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology the same year he drew "Potato Salad Man." At the time of his death at age 43, he was an instructor of painting and drawing at MAG’s Creative Workshop. Visitors who remember his subject, the poet and former MAG educator Jim Lavilla-Havelin, will attest to Berg’s ability to render both the physical appearance and the emotional presence of his sitters.
