Time Out says

The Outsider Art Fair returns this year for its 30th edition, hosting international exhibitors displaying works from more than 60 self-taught artists pushing the boundaries of creativity. Don't miss an exhibition of psychedelic art called "Field Trip: Psychedelic Solution, 1986 – 1995," which is filled to the brim with work from the likes of pioneering underground cartoonist/Zap Comix artist Spain Rodriguez, R Crumb, Robert Williams, Rick Griffin, S. Clay Wilson, longtime Zappa collaborator Bruce Bickford along with original artwork related to Sixties bands like Jefferson Airplane, Buffalo Springfield and The Who. You'll even see the original drawing that spawned the Grateful Dead’s logo along with the origin story as well as preparatory drawings for the Jerry Garcia solo album "Compliments Of" from 1974 by artist Victor Moscoso. You'll also see several solo presentations, including Native American ledger drawings at Donald Ellis (New York); drawings by the legendary musician Daniel Johnston (1962-2019) at Electric Lady Studios (New York), and classic art brut with the OAF debut of London’s The Gallery of Everything. Also, the fair continues its longstanding relationship with the world’s top ateliers or “workshops” that serve artists with developmental or physical disabilities.
