The Tin Man | The New York Post

Don Kaplan features Dean Millien's work in The New York Post:

For almost four decades, animals have held the key to Dean Millien’s mind; and now with a healthy dose of aluminum foil, they hold the key to his future.
Millien — an artist turned newly minted entrepreneur — has a developmental disability and lives in a residential program in Brooklyn. Yet his gift for turning aluminum foil into high art — specifically animal sculptures — has led to his work being displayed in a Brooklyn gallery and now made an integral part of the décor for the J.Crew flagship store on Madison Avenue.
