Honoring Peter Williams We gratefully celebrate the life of artist Peter Williams ('18), a highly regarded American artist who channeled his self-awareness and the experiences of Black Americans through surreal, boldly-colored narrative paintings. He is dearly remembered by our staff, and was an exemplar of triumph over hardship. During his stay with Djerassi, Williams lived in our Middlebrook studio, which allowed easy access for his motorized wheelchair. Read full tribute
