|Recurring Event (See all)
| Saint Louis Art Museum | $6 - $12

Organized by the American Folk Art Museum, this traveling exhibit includes more than 100 works from self-taught artists. Some worked anonymously in the 19th century; some of them are well-known and contemporary. The show also includes a wide range of mediums, including needlework, ceramics, painting, drawing, sculpture, painted furniture, and texts. Well-known names on the list include Achilles Rizzoli, Henry Darger, and Bill Traylor, but the works credited to “Unknown,” are just as powerful.
