Charles Williams was a visionary artist born in Blue Diamond, an old coal town outside of Hazard, where he drew inspiration from the superhero and space travel comics of his youth. He received little recognition during his lifetime while working in Lexington until his untimely death from AIDS related complications and starvation in 1998.
His story inspired the founding of Moveable Feast in Lexington, which provides meals to those affected by HIV/AIDS. More recently, there has been a resurgence of interest in Williams’ work, with retrospectives in major galleries in Atlanta, Chicago, and in Lexington.

60% of Moveable Feast’s budget comes from donors. With good nutrition and proper medication, our at-risk AIDS clients can achieve a viral load so low as to live as close to normal life and be unable to transmit the virus to someone else.  So, by donating to Moveable Feast you are not only feeding those in need of food but aiding in stopping the spread of AIDS.
