‘Folks and Wee Folks: The Works of William M. Duffy’

William M. Duffy is a dedicated man — dedicated to art, African-American culture and teaching. He is a Louisville native, so I should add he is dedicated to Louisville too, since he made the conscious decision to stay here (this is not an easy place for a practicing artist). Best known around town as an abstract sculptor, his exhibition “Folks and Wee Folks” also features his drawings and silkscreens.
