Busboys and Poets Presents “ART TALK”: Outside Art
Brookland | Pearl Bailey Room | November 30, 2017 | 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us in the Pearl Bailey Room for Busboys and Poets Art Talk entitled "Outsider Art". Outsider art is art by self-taught art makers. Typically, those labeled as outsider artists have little or no contact with the mainstream art world or art institutions. In many cases, their work is discovered only after their deaths. Often, outsider art illustrates extreme mental states, unconventional ideas, or elaborate fantasy worlds.
