Deep Sea: Drawings by William Golding

December 12, 2009 - March 14, 2010

This exhibition consisted of an array of maritime drawings by the self-taught African American artist, William O. Golding. Shanghaied from the Savannah waterfront when he was eight years old, William O. Golding chronicled his travels through a series of maritime drawings that he created near the end of his life while a patient at the U.S. Marine Hospital in Savannah. Between 1932 and 1939 he executed around sixty drawings, created from his memories of the ships he sailed and the ports he visited around the globe.
