Artists without official instruction, who acquired from family, neighborhood, and personal journeys, have long been a presence in American artwork. But it was not until eventually the 1980s, with the aid of trailblazing advocates, that the collective drive of their resourceful vision and presence irrevocably turned the tide in the mainstream art earth. By way of drawings, paintings, and sculptures that span the narrative to the summary, the artworks in We Are Made of Tales: Self-Taught Artists in the Robson Family members Collection convey the humanistic ability of art and enable us to see the earth through the lens of one more.
