“Marilyn Green creates the kind of art that a curator or critic yearns for in today’s art climate that is sadly dominated by a plethora of hype, shock and the mundane. She fuses diverse elements into an extraordinary sensitive perspective of the universal human condition with innovation and technical prowess. She follows her own vision and makes her indelible mark.”
— Renee Phillips, author and Director Manhattan Arts International
