    Art Brokerage: Matt Lamb American Artist: b. 1932-2012. Matt Lamb (7 April 1932 – February 18, 2012) was an American painter. Matt Lamb was born in Chicago, Illinois, in 1932. In 1994 Lamb became President of Midwest Patrons of the Arts, Vatican Museum, and Director of Vatican Museum Foundation, New York, and opened a fourth studio in the Saarland Tünsdorf, a local part of Mettlach. He opened a fifth studio in 2000 in Paris. In 2001 the artist created his project "The Lamb Umbrellas for Peace" in response to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. He began with a 3-day workshop in Washington, D.C. for 38 children who had lost their parents in the attack, each of them expressing their feelings in colorful ways on the umbrellas. The workshop was followed by a parade of the children carrying their umbrellas, and the umbrellas were shown on Capitol Hill. In 2003 the project expanded to Europe, where The Lamb Umbrellas for to Peace were shown in the European Parliament at Strasbourg, in the German Bundestag and in the two houses of the British Parliament. Since then worldwide 300,000 children have painted screens for the peace. In 2003 Matt Lamb created his tallest work of art in the peace chapel of the parish church of St. Martin in Tünsdorf, Saarland, Germany. "Mary, Queen of Peace" (Regina Pacis / Maria Friedenskönigin), is one of the largest frescos in Europe with a painted surface of 120 m² and has an entry in the Guide Michelin. Lamb dedicated the chapel to the mother of God, whom he regards as embodiment of absolute acceptance and love. A similar Project has been realized by Matt Lamb in 2007, when he painted the Pool, built by the soviets, under the St. Petri church in St. Petersburg. Lamb died in Chicago on 18 February 2012 of pulmonary fibrosis. He was 79. Listings wanted.
