Time Out says

Not everyone has to go to school to produce art. This exhibition embraces "diverse narratives and finds entry to connect these works of hand, heart, and mind to our contemporary perceptions," the museum says. Works on view include those by Edward Hicks and other 19th century artists as well 20th and 21st century works by Aloise Corbaz, Henry Darger, Horace Pippin, and Judith Scott.
