Inspired by Cosmic Giggles, a comic book mini-series by the late Lexington artist Charles Williams, these interstellar socks are sure to add some starshine to your outfit. The socks are available in four designs, and produced in honor of the first major museum retrospective of the artist's work, entitled The Life and Death of Charles Williams, held at the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center, curated by Institute 193 founder and Curator-at-Large Phillip March Jones.
Proceeds from the sale of this item benefit Moveable Feast Lexington, a non-profit organization that prepares and delivers to the door a hot, nutritious meal five days a week to low-income people in Lexington-Fayette County, Kentucky who have HIV/AIDS. They also feed their caregivers and dependent children. The founders were motivated to create the organization after the death of Charles Williams in 1998, an artist living with AIDS who died of starvation at his home in downtown Lexington, only a few blocks from City Hall.
