Lighting the Way
Peter Adams admits to being somewhat of a rapscallion in his early years. When he was a junior, the military school he was attending instituted an art program. Unimpressed with the artwork created by the teacher and students and displayed in the cafeteria, he took action.
“I took it all down, stole some paints and put my paintings up under the nom deplume Von Seitz,” he says. “I put my paintings up all over campus. About five years later, I was back at the school for some event, and there was a sign that said, ‘Von Seitz, come back; we need you!”
