“Bringing outsider art inside the museum”
This center and museum is the only non-profit in the US that is focused entirely on the work of self-taught and outsider artists. The exhibitions display a rotating assortment of more then 1,100 works of art. One of the more well known outsider artist Henry Darger, lived in a one room apartment in Chicago for most of his life, writing and illustrating a15,000 page saga detailing the adventures of the mythical ‘Vivian Girls’, which was discovered after his death. The Intuit Center came into possession of much of his work and furnishings, and has re-created his room in the museum, giving you a glimpse into Darger’s extraordinary and strange mind.
I believe the visionary art museum in Baltimore exists with almost identical purpose. Perhaps two such art non profits in the country? Either way they are both incredible with honorable intention to showcase the amazing artists works. Baltimore’s is one of my favorite places.
