This spring, objects from one of the United States’ finest private collections of works by American self-taught artists will be on view at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Great and Mighty Things: Outsider Art from the Jill and Sheldon Bonovitz Collection will present drawings, paintings, sculptures, and other objects by twenty-seven artists who worked outside the boundaries of the mainstream modern and contemporary art world.
“For over three decades, Jill and Sheldon Bonovitz have assembled this extraordinary collection, and with this exhibition have promised it to the Museum. A collection-transforming gift such as this—which includes more than 200 works of art—is a rare thing and the Bonovitzes’ remarkable generosity will greatly enhance our collection by increasing our holdings in the field, and establishing the Museum as one of the primary centers for the study of outsider art in the country,” said Timothy Rub, The George D.
