Artist Talk: George Widener

Learn about George Widener and his work from the artist himself at our upcoming artist talk. On August 5, Widener will discuss his journey as an artist, his art and practice and how it has evolved over time. At the event, we will look closely at his works of art featured in the exhibition Outsider Art: The Collection of Victor F. Keen.

Intuit previously featured works by George Widener in our 2015 exhibition dRAW.
