The paintings and drawings of Marshall Arisman have been widely exhibited, both throughout the U.S. and internationally. His work may be seen in the permanent collections of the Brooklyn Museum, the National Museum of American Art and the Smithsonian Institution, as well as in many private and corporate collections.
Marshall’s original graphic essay “Heaven Departed,” in which paintings and drawings depict the emotional and spiritual impact of nuclear war on society, was published in book form by Vision Publishers (Tokyo, 1988).
Chairman of the M.F.A. degree program at the School of Visual Arts in New York City, Marshall was the first American invited to exhibit his artwork in mainland China. His series “Sacred Monkeys” appeared at the Guangdong Museum of Art in April 1999.
Marshall is the subject of a full-length documentary film directed by Tony Silver, titled Facing the Audience: The Arts of Marshall Arisman. The film had its premiere showing at the 2002 Santa Barbara Film Festival.
