This talk will consider how self-taught artists—both contemporary and historical—quelled longstanding anxieties about originality in American art and created a more inclusive definition of who could be an artist in the United States. This talk will consider how “gatecrashers”such as Grandma Moses and Horace Pippin paved the way for future generations of self-taught artists who continue to diversify the changing canon of American art.

This program takes place virtually via GoTo Webinar. You will receive a confirmation email of your registration. The link to the virtual program will be sent via email closer to the event date.
