The History of Golden Artist Colors, Inc.

The idea for the Podcast – Paint Stories – came about as we were gearing up to celebrate our 40th year of Golden Artist Colors, I had begun to gather information in various forms, most recently for a lecture at the Midland Center for the Arts in Midland, Michigan. As we moved into March and realized that much of our plans would have to be scrapped and with some unexpected time on my hands, I decided that since everyone was home bound right now, what a wonderful opportunity to connect with many of the folks that helped create the success of Golden Artist Colors! I was also able to put the earlier history of my Dad and Great Uncle Leonard Bocour into some greater context and with stories from my brother Tom, who actually worked at the shop in Manhattan, and later, joined us at Golden Artist Colors.

I couldn’t be more delighted with the response from the artists that were willing to share their stories and connections to both Bocour and Golden Artist Colors. It has brought back so many wonderful memories.
