Born in 1922 in New Jersey, Milan moved to northeastern Pennsylvania in 1962. From the late 1960's to the early 1970's, he was part of the Penn State Cooperative Extension Service Program which sent master crafts artists all over the state to teach with the hopes of improving the "industry" of craft for the benefit of the Pennsylvania economy.

A master at using the bandsaw, Milan was also an expert of elegant carved organic objects. This is the first exhibition of Milan's work since his death in 1985 and only his second one-man show.
