I regret to tell you that Gene passed away on 6/23/2011, around 11pm. Gene had ongoing health issues with his liver, heart and cancer.
Gene Colan was once an instructor at the School of Visual Arts. Many P.I.C. members had taken Gene’s class while attending SVA.
Gene died while in hospice from complications of liver disease and a broken hip. He was 84 years old.
Please keep the Colan family in your prayers.
