Our first president – and “First Tourist” of Berkeley Springs — continues to fascinate artists more than 200 years after his death.

Green George is the creation of artist Clark V. Fox who has strong links to the modern underground art movement and the Washington Color School. Classically trained with an unerring eye for Old Masters, his original style combines realism and farce with pop and pointillism. He is widely collected and exhibited internationally. Fox has permanent installations at the Corcoran and National Gallery. He founded The Museum of Contemporary Art in Washington, D.C. and continued its development for 14 years.

Green George is on permanent loan from Doug Grabill.
