Self-taught American Artists | December 4, 2018 | 4:30–8:30 pm

 

Self-taught artists—often referred to as outsider, visionary, or folk artists—have made important contributions to the field of American art, yet many of them have also been subject to significant marginalization. At this session, we will engage with the special exhibition Outliers and American Vanguard Art to explore these artists and their work more deeply. Teachers will learn how to expose their students to a more inclusive canon of primary sources and promote just spaces for learning and creating.
