We’re pleased to share this special tribute to Bronx native William P. Folchi (1922-1992), father of BX200 artist John Folchi. The blog post was submitted by his son Bill, who writes, “Here is a brief bio of my father that I had prepared for his exhibit at the library in Westchester Square. I am attaching some samples of his work from the 1950s and 1960s. All scenes are of the Bronx, and I would be delighted (as dad would have been) to see them posted on the blog.” Enjoy!
