Outsider Art: Harnessing Color – Panel Discussion
March 2 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
About the Panel:
Led by artist and outsider art enthusiast Kim Pinksaw, exhibit artists and curators will be discussing the controversial term, Outsider Art, and color as an important feature in providing artists a voice to communicate their own identity and narrative.
Many of the artists will be communicating to the audience through artistic expression. The intent is to bring more awareness to the community about artists with disabilities and their creative process.
