Meet the Artist: Interview with William Christenberry

As a young man, William Christenberry often traveled the back roads of the South with his father. He studied painting as a graduate student at the University of Alabama until he discovered James Agee’s book Let Us Now Praise Famous Men. Christenberry was moved when he realized that the tenant farmers in Walker Evans’ photographs were people he remembered from growing up near Hale County, Alabama.

Although Christenberry creates many different kinds of art, ranging from photographs to drawings to sculpture, his experiences growing up in the South serve as the subject for most of his artwork.
