Help Frame Newly Restored
Henry Darger Maps
Last summer, thanks to our friends and dedicated Henry Darger fans, Intuit was able to have restored three maps drawn by Darger, mapping some of his "Realms of the Unreal.” The maps look wonderful. Now it’s time for the next and last step. To keep the maps in their newly fantastic condition they must be given museum quality framing. To do this, we need your help. Your contribution will ensure the maps will be around for future generations to enjoy.
Established in 1991, Intuit: The Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art is the only nonprofit organization in the United States that is dedicated solely to presenting self-taught and outsider art. Its mission is to celebrate the power of outsider art. A part of Intuit’s permanent exhibition, the Henry Darger Room Collection draws in museum visitors everyday. The room is unique in that it is now home to Darger’s fireplace, dresser, desk, magazines, books and art supplies he diligently collected throughout his life. Within this collection of his belongings, Intuit found three maps he created that chart the lands of his 15,145 page book, In the Realms of the Unreal. Due to their fragile condition, two maps had to be restored, before they could be put on view to audiences like you. With your help, they can be viewed for generations to come.
