Dr. Blau is also known for his artistry in painting (including both oils and watercolors) and sculpting, a natural talent, well suited to his chosen profession. His collections were exhibited in San Francisco, New York and as far away as Europe. Some of his creations are on display in his office reception area for all to appreciate and enjoy. His artistic abilities earned him a lifetime membership at the Ruben Dario Cultural Institute in White Plains, New York – a prestigious award presented to only a gifted few.
