Work from W.W. Law Art Collection on display in City Hall

(Savannah, GA)- Works by Chicago artist William S. Carter (1909-1996) from the W. W. Law Art Collection are now on exhibit in the City Hall Rotunda.

The W. W. Law Art Collection is part of a larger body of material representing the life and work of W. W. Law, including manuscript and audiovisual materials, books, artifacts and photographs on display through July 1, 2016.

Law was a prominent Civil Rights and community leader, local historian, and historic preservationist. After a forty-year career as a mail-carrier for the United States Postal Service and twenty-six years as President of the Savannah Chapter of the NAACP, Law turned his focus and efforts to preserving Savannah’s African American community through its stories, landmarks, and art.

Carter’s work has been exhibited in Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, New York, St. Louis, Washington, DC, and at the King-Tisdell Cottage in Savannah.

The exhibition is free and open to the public. City Hall, located at 2 E. Bay Street, is open from 8:15 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday.
