'Greatest' Exhibit Packs One-Two Punch at New York Historical Society
Even in a photograph or a watercolor painting, Muhammad Ali seems larger than life. During his career in and out of the ring, he was well documented, but not many were as close as photographer George Kalinsky, or artist LeRoy Neiman.
"You get a really good sense of their friendship, and the works are really immediate and intimate," said Lily Wong, curator of 'Muhammad Ali, LeRoy Neiman, and the Art of Boxing.'
Two exhibitions at the New York Historical Society pay tribute to the 3-time Heavyweight Champion and activist, who passed away in June.
