Born February 5, 1914 in St. Louis, Missouri, William S. Burroughs was an innovative writer and artist. A primary figure in the Beat Generation, Burroughs deeply influenced popular culture with dozens of books and hundreds of paintings, essays, spoken word performances and multi-media collaborations. 

William S. Burroughs made his home in Lawrence, Kansas, where he lived and created art from 1981 until his death in 1997. During that time, Burroughs continued his explorations in material and process, and created a large body of work. Burroughs’ work has been featured in over fifty international galleries and museums including Royal Academy of the Arts, Centre Pompidou, Guggenheim Museum, New Museum, Irish Museum of Modern Art, Los Angeles County Museum, Spencer Museum of Art, and Whitney Museum of American Art.
