Woodworker by Trade, Artist by Choice

The work of BSA alumnus William Rhodes was recently selected to become part of the permanent collection of the Smithsonian’s new National Museum of African American History and Culture. The Baltimore Sun recently profiled Mr. Rhodes for this tremendous accomplishment:

“On a recent bright November morning, William Rhodes relaxed at the West Baltimore home of his friend and fellow artist, Joyce J. Scott.

That’s by design.”
