Juxtapozed and Robert Williams: SLANG Aesthetics! opened on April 21st at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art welcoming over 600 art enthusiasts through its doors. This was the first time Williams has shown in the mid-west, and the exhibition attracted guests from all over the midwest and east coast who drove in to be at the opening. The cities mentioned include Detroit, Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids, Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Indianapolis, and Pittsburgh to name a few. The following day Robert Williams discussed the basics of his work and process while always being considered an outsider in the art world.

Robert Williams: It is not my intention to take every color in the color wheel and extol metaphysical significance to each hue. Nor is it justifiable to invoke the laws of physics with regards to scientific observations of the prismatic spectrum. However, colors do have personalities.
