Art Exhibit: Hiram Williams - A Curators Tribute
Monday, March 2 – Friday, April 10

This exhibit is a tribute to Hiram Williams’s work, his indomitable spirit, and the intelligence and passion of a life lived fully.

For those who never understood his work because of its abstraction, look again to see that you are the audience about which he painted, full of complexity, joy, darkness and brilliance. He was ever hopeful:

“Please look at the work! My hope is that there will be rewards as my imagery touches upon the human condition. There is considerable joy in recognizing our fate, the absurdity of life and how we, as audience, seek to create meaning in a hopeless situation. It takes courage to do this. Be kind to other members of audience, after all, you are one of them!” Learn more.
