Outsider Art 2009 Wall Calendar

Outsider Art Wall Calendar: Twenty years ago it was easy to define “outsider art” as self-taught art’s eccentric, alienated fringe. But as this work became increasingly visible, artists themselves would recast that definition. Today’s outsider art, unconditioned by engagement with the currents of history, exhibits a tremendous diversity of approaches and materials. This calendar’s twelve exciting examples of American outsider art include works by Eddie Arning, Henry Darger, Charles Dellschau, Thornton Dial Sr., Sam Doyle, William Hawkins, Laura Craig McNellis, Elijah Pierce, MartÍn RamÍrez, Nellie Mae Rowe, Drossos P. Skyllas, and Bill Traylor.

Diego Rivera Detroit Industry Murals 2009 Wall Calendar
