Any visit to Millvale wouldn’t be complete without seeing the murals of Croatian-American artist Maksimilijan “Maxo” Vanka. Located in the St. Nicholas Croatian Catholic Church, the works have long captivated viewers with their politically radical imagery protesting against industrial capitalism, World War I, and the rise of fascism. The Society to Preserve the Millvale Murals of Maxo Vanka celebrates his legacy with Cocktails and Conservation: The Art of Social Justice, a night of live entertainment, activities, food, and, of course, tasty beverages. It also includes the premiere of artist Alisha Wormsley’s Act of Sister, a tribute to women inspired by the Vanka murals.
