Voyage LA: Today we’d like to introduce you to LG Williams. Hi LG, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstories.
LG Williams: I’ve been asked this question a lot during my adult daycare residency’s afternoon Arts and Crafts program—especially after my year-long, worldwide artist lecture tour and subsequent acceptance into the Post-Conceptual/Post-Commodity Revisionist-Art Hall of Fame in Carmel, CA.

I’m originally from the Ozarks. Back then, I loved crafting a bit more than bass fishing. So, after art school, I hitchhiked to Los Angeles. That decision was a no-brainer — which was good since I had little extra to spare. What I didn’t know back then was this: Every Hollywood hipster can spot poor, destitute country folk — like me — a mile away. That’s probably one reason why, after all these years, I’ve never been invited to exhibit art in Tinseltown. Another reason might be that my “story” has been anything but unique.
