Hawkins Bolden (1914–2005) was a self-taught artist who lived his entire life in Memphis, TN. At the age of seven, Bolden was left completely blind following a baseball accident involving his twin brother. Later in life, he began scavenging the alleyways and fields around his home in search of discarded materials, litter and other debris with which to work.
