This portrait of Ben Bradley has just been painted by artist and Fountain Family member Diane Levin

“I had the pleasure of meeting Ben twice and of discovering  his beautiful soul,” says Diane. 

Ben Bradley was our longtime and beloved Fountain Theatre producer and director. He was murdered in 2010. 

Says Diane: “The painting is meant to be representational. It has been an enjoyable process to create the portrait of a man so loved by his community.”
