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.

Join us for a discussion about outside or visionary art.  Featuring Elva Anderson and Dolly Vehlow

Elva Anderson, Ph.D. is a health educator and art therapist at Childrens’ National Medical Center. Her personal work is currently on display at the Busboys and Poets Brookland

Dolly Vehlow is an award winning graphic designer, founder/sponsor of H Street Festival and co-founder and director of Gallery O on H Street, NE. She is a curator and collector of Outside Art. “Obituaries” from the Gallery O on H Street collection is currently on display at Busboys and Poets, Brookland.
