Think you don’t have anything to do this Friday? Attend the opening of Accidental Genius: Art from the Anthony Petullo Collection at the Milwaukee Art Museum!
This exhibition celebrates the gift to the Milwaukee Art Museum of more than 300 works from the Anthony Petullo Collection. This generous gift greatly enhances the Milwaukee Art Museum’s significant holdings of self-taught material. Petullo, a retired Milwaukee businessman and current Board of Trustees member, built his collection over a span of over thirty years. The collection’s strength is in European work, an area represented in few American collections. Accidental Genius: Art from the Anthony Petullo Collection will feature works by many of the most important American and European artists in the genre including Bill Traylor, Martín Ramírez, Henry Darger, Minnie Evans, Alfred Wallis, Anna Zemankova, Adolf Wölfli, and Scottie Wilson.
