Tuesday Talks, the speaker series featuring residents of Cleveland Park and Woodley Park resumes on September 22nd at 7 pm, with Celebrating the Pioneering Work of Bill Christenberry. Sandy Christenberry will be in conversation with curator and gallery owner George Hemphill.
Bill Christenberry was not only an internationally renowned artist but a beloved neighbor in Cleveland Park where he and his wife Sandy moved in 1972. Bill had a long and distinguished career as an artist, teacher, and mentor to hundreds of students at the Corcoran School of Art. Bill’s own work expressed his deep love of his native Alabama, notably Hale County made famous by James Agee and Walker Evans in Let Us Now Praise Famous Men. Bill was a multi-faceted artist — painter, photographer, sculptor, story teller, and educator about the South, including that part which he abhorred – racism, as exemplified by the Ku Klux Klan.
