In 1972, Gray was offered a commission that resulted in what is considered his most dazzling work, a huge multi-paneled mural for the enormous central gallery in the Philip Johnson-designed Neuberger Museum on the campus of the State University of New York at Purchase. Gray's Threnody, a brooding, passionate response to the horrors of the Vietnam War, was characterized by Emily Genauer in the New York Post as "the most moving and beautiful mural project in the country." Cleve Gray has also been a diligent and accomplished writer for many years. He has been a contributing editor for Art in America magazine, an essayist and editor of three volumes on the work of the artists David Smith, John Marin, and Hans Richter, and the translator of Marcel Duchamp's A l'Infinitif.
