Divine Disorder; Conference on the Conservation of Outsider Folk Art

Divine Disorder; Conference on the Conservation of Outsider Folk Art

From February 24, 2015 to February 26, 2015

This second conference on the conservation of Folk and Outsider Art will take place on February 24-26, 2015 in the Hill Auditorium of the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, Georgia and Paradise Gardens in Summerville, Georgia.

This conference is focused on highlighting the under appreciated decorative works of non-traditional artists. The conservation of these works is vital to preserving the life story of those artists outside the main stream art community. Artists come from all walks of life and every ethnic background, Folk and Outsider art is many times strongly patriotic, intensely spiritual, but always deeply personal. If not preserved we lose the window into the lives of the artists and their folk traditions. The first Divine Disorder was held February 15-16, 2012 on the campus of Northwestern University in Natchitoches, Louisiana.

The Conference will be held February 24-25, 2015 at the High Museum, Atlanta, GA. The program will feature two days of contributed papers. The final day of the conference February 26, 2015 will take place at Paradise Gardens and will feature talks on the Gardens as well as hands-on workshop components.
