Today, we heard of the passing of Bill Royall. Bill exemplified the greatest of humanity – intelligent, kind, philanthropic, and an amazingly visionary client. We had the good fortune of working with Bill from the initial design to the joyful realization of the VCU ICA. This project would not have happened without his leadership, his dedication, and his deep beliefs in the power of art. At this troubling time in the history of the USA, we should all reflect on the integrity and vision of Bill Royall as a leader that will be deeply missed, and might set an example for leaders of the future.
