CONTINUATION OF  OUR TOUR OF THE OGDEN MUSEUM SOUTHERN ART COLLECTION

You may call it outsider art or folk art, but there is an art throughout  the South that one sees that is done by untrained artist with simple perspective or no perspective.  The colors are often bright and the imagery is often religious or regional.

Going Home by Willie Birch
Going Home tells the story of the children of the great migration as they return to the South.  Using a the simple medium of paper mache conveying an icon of simplicity as a symbol in itself.  The sculpture is offered like an open text for viewers to participate in.
