Join the Sloane Art Library, the Media Resources Center, and the Department of American Studies for a free, public screening of two films about outsider art:

  • Angel That Stands By Me (1983), about the visionary art of painter Minnie Evans of Wilmington, N.C., whose work depicts a world of mythical animals, religious symbols, and natural beauty;
  • Mr. Dial Has Something to Say (2007), depicting the work of Thornton Dial and his explorations of improvisational art in African American culture.

A discussion will follow the films, led by Dr. Bernard Herman, George B. Tindall Professor of American Studies, and Dr. Timothy McMillan, adjunct assistant professor of African and Afro-American Studies.
