The Art Museum at the University of Memphis has opened an exhibition on the works of Los Angeles architect Paul Revere Williams, above left, with champion prizefighter Joe Louis in 1960.

The university began the project in 2006 to recognize Williams, whose parents were born in Memphis. The project eventually expanded to include a website devoted to Williams’ work. Researchers were hampered because Williams’ papers were destroyed during the 1992 Los Angeles riots. More information about the project is here.

The exhibit will be on display through Jan. 8, 2011.
