Outsider Art: Collection of Victor Keen
When: Saturday-Jan. 12
Where: Sangre de Cristo Arts Center, 210 N Santa Fe Ave. Pueblo
Price: Museum admission costs $10 for adults, $8 for children
Self-taught artists often don’t get much attention, or the same amount of attention as trained artists. This is why another term has emerged for these works: Outsider art. And, for this exhibit, outsider artists are the star of the show. Artists such as Adolf Wölfli, Martín Ramírez, Lee Godie and George Widener will be on display as well as the collection of Victor Keen, a native of Pueblo.
