Step Into My Studio: Porter Williams

This video comes from SDPB's arts & life program, Dakota Life.

It has been a long road to get there for Porter Williams, now 80, but the art of sculpture creation finally found him thirty years ago. After struggling with pencils, he found relief in oils, but in the three-dimensional process of sculpting, he found his true purpose.

With a driven interest in both history and art, he was able to found the South Dakota African American History Museum, at the Washington Pavilion in Sioux Falls. So that others might learn more about heritage and culture, here in South Dakota, through art.
