Event Description
Join Willem and Diane Volkersz of Bozeman, Montana as they talk about their collection of folk and outsider art which they have been building since the mid-1970s. This lecture is offered in conjunction with the opening of the Strange and Wonderful: Folk Art from the Willem and Diane Volkersz Collection exhibition at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art. 

Organized by director John Olbrantz under the guidance of the Volkersz’, this exhibition features 108 objects by 32 artists that reflect the breadth and scope of this remarkable collection. Included in the exhibition are paintings, sculptures, drawings, ceramics, textiles, and mixed media works by self-taught and outsider artists such as the Rev. Howard Finster, Arthur Frenchy, Robert E. Smith, and Sarah Taylor, among many others.
