Danny Williams received his MA in painting from the University of Iowa. He is the recipient of the Fulbright-Hayes Grant for Art Studies, for which he traveled to India for a year to study art. Williams also received a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship, and the Otis Dozier Travel Grant from the Dallas Museum of Art. His work was exhibited at the 38th Corcoran Biennial of American Painting at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington DC, and the Gallery of Contemporary Art in Monfort l’Amaury, France. The Belo Corporation’s collection of Williams’s pieces are a great example of the geometric abstraction utilized in most of his work.
