We hope you enjoy the above paintings we recently donated to the Nick Virgilio Haiku Association. William’s paintings (Walt and Rocky) were installed at the Nick Virgilio Writers House located at 1801 Broadway in South Camden.
These paintings are from William’s Camden Beautiful exhibit which is a visual exploration and tribute to the discovery of beauty in Camden. Although Camden has been burdened by challenges, the people of Camden’s story is one of strength, courage, and resilience. The purpose of the Camden Beautiful paintings is to engage and provide a visual narrative to the collective beauty in relation to the diverse and creative culture in the city of Camden.

Special thanks to George Vallianos, Robin Palley, Henry Brann, and all the members of the board and the leadership at Nick Virgilio Haiku Association. Also, thanks to the talented Rocky Wilson (aka Walt Whitman) who inspires us all.
