As part of the museum’s 30th-anniversary celebration, Intuit invites members to a series of virtual private collection tours hosted on Zoom throughout 2021. Each event includes a screening of a collector’s home tour, followed by personal stories told and a Q&A with the collector about their collecting journey.
Join fellow Intuit members for a tour of the home of Sue and John Lowenberg, whose collecting journey began in the late ’80s with Santa Fe folk woodcarvers. In the early ’90s, on a trip to New Orleans, the two discovered artist Mose Tolliver’s work. Through researching outsider art, Sue and John became involved with Intuit and learned of opportunities to visit outsider artists at their homes in the south. They took a number of trips on their own in the ’90s, visiting more than 30 artists in North Carolina, Georgia and Alabama, including Mose and Annie Tolliver, Jimmy Lee Sudduth, Jake McCord, RA Miller and James Harold Jennings. They continue to expand their collection of folk art as they travel to other countries.
Intuit will email the Zoom link to members on the day of the event. Please check your junk folder; unfortunately, these emails are sent there sometimes.
