Winer, (1913 - 2008) was a graduate from Harvard college and owned and operated a Women's department store in New Hampshire. He served as an Army sergeant in World War II and was among the first troops to liberate the Dachau concentration camp in Germany, in addition to that he was also one of the first to reach Hitler's hideout.
As an artist, Winer was very involved in collage art and in the words of his daughter, "when he grew tired of a work, he would rip it apart or slash it and then reconstruct it in a new way." he wanted to be "willing to reinvent things in life," she added. He took that outlook to the art classes he taught to teenagers and pre-teenagers at the Manatee Regional Juvenile Detention Center in Florida.
