Comments by artists and poets in Chicago/NYC:
Anything Dan Weinberg does is interesting. That includes his drawings. P.S. I own one of his original xeroxes. -Bill Yarrow-Poet
Dan Weinberg has given us modern day proverbs on a quilt-like background. -Jerry Pendergast-Chicago poet
Daniel Weinberg is an outsider artist and poet, with a distinct style of his own. His work is delicate, transparent and naked; innocent, yet thoughtful. Embedded in Jewish tradition he is totally himself, a struggling peace seeker among his fellow humans. His drawings are weaved in poetry and speak from the heart, no gimmicks or commercial overtones. Everyone should check his website! -Ayala Leyser, Ph.D. - Out of Line Art Gallery
Dan is a visual poet…a word artist. -Lowell “Race Man” Thompson-Artist
I like your [Weinberg’s] art. I like political art. -Dorit Jordan Dotan-Artist
A moving, powerful collection of art that strikes at the core of our own urgency. Dan’s work captures the “outsider” sensibility, so appropriate for a time in which most of us feel like strangers in our own country. -John Pietaro-Dissident Arts Fest organizer
