Visionary Ball 2020
A virtual fundraiser celebration for Intuit

Visionary Award Recipient: Lonnie Holley – artist, art educator and musician
Honorary Chairs: Michelle Woods and Stacy Wells

2020 has been a year of transformation for Intuit. The urgency of our mission—to celebrate the power of outsider art—has heightened. Intuit reaffirmed our commitment to diversity and inclusion (see here). We pivoted from creating intimate, on-site experiences to opening our virtual doors to the country and world with new, online programs. Now, for the first time, Intuit will host a virtual Visionary Ball gala!

Please join co-chairs Stacy Wells and Michelle Woods from the comfort of your home on Thursday, October 1, to tune into the live video stream. Intuit friends from all over the country and world will celebrate Intuit’s 29th and most resilient year.

We will honor Lonnie Holley as the second artist to receive Intuit’s Visionary Award, given to those doing outstanding work in the field of outsider art (Mr. Imagination was the first artist recipient in 2009). We will reflect on the exhibitions, programs and events that championed outsider art and the voices of these artists, as well.

Founded in 1991, Intuit is a premier museum of outsider art. Each year, the museum’s exhibitions, outreach, events, publications, website, and social media reach more than 80,000 people. Intuit’s vital programs include our exhibitions, the Teacher Fellowship Program, and the IntuiTeens Summer Youth Internships. Furthermore, Intuit continues to engage outsider art audiences with our publication The Outsider and various programs aimed at youth and adults like Art After Work, which feature artists, scholars, authors, filmmakers, storytelling, poetry, music, dance and collaborations with service organizations.
