Visiting an exhibition in person is a much richer experience than visiting online. Why not leave a comment to share your thoughts and impressions with others?

What a waste of time this exhibition is. There are so many worthy artists struggling to be known and PMA wastes our time and energy on this terrible assemblage. You know it is because they are getting a lot of money from the doners. This show has absolutely nothing to do with aesthetics.

We found this exhibit extremely interesting. It was amazing to see how "outsider's" art turned out so wonderful and different than most others. Everything in here was unique and fascinating. We're glad our Art Club decided to come here on this trip.

Just saw a bug. Kind of disturbing. Anyways, this exhibit was very interesting. I very much enjoyed the phone with ear pieces to teach me about the artists who were displayed. So far, i have enjoyed this museum. It's my first time in it and here have been a lot of exhibits that struck my interest. I will definitely be returning. HAVE A GOOD DAY! :D

Outsider is an insulting term....THese are masterworks by self-taught artists. THey were parts of their communities and to marginalize them with such a title is unfortunate. The show is wonderful.....why ruin it with a ridiculous title

I thought that this exhibit was very interesting and unique. Many of the artists expressed their art in different ways and I enjoyed seeing the different pieces. Some pieces were different than the type of art im used to seeing. However, I surprisingly enjoyed viewing them all and seeing how different people express themselves and their art.

This work is wonderful and although I saw the previous exhibit with many of the same pieces, I did like seeing them again. I do think, if it's possible, it would be good to show some different ones.

I enjoyed the exhibition. I've followed Outsider art from the time I discovered Art Brut in Lausanne in 1985. This exhibition seems to emphasize the folk art and primitivist elements over the obsessive art produced by the mentally-disturbed artists I first saw. Perhaps the different and complimentary strands of Outsider Art could be further recognized in introductory comments greeting exhibition-goers. In a review of the exhibition, I heard the name the Swiss Outsider artist Adolf Wolfi mentioned but found that this exhibition is exclusively American. A few international pieces could offer a means of comparison that could highlight the different or similar approaches European Outsider artists have taken. Thank you for the opportunity!

This was an amazing exhibit. The work is profound. Very moving and dynamic. Thank you for bring it to a wider audience. Art is an expression of the soul. Everyone has an artist inside.

I find this exhibit very inspiring. It is a good reminder that before there was academically trained artist there existed the artist.

Being an outsider seems to confer long life. It also embraces a lot of very crazy and hyperreligious people.Just think about the parents of these artists.Would they come to this exhibit and say, "My kid could do that"?

This is a great exhibit. It is an interesting contrast to the "Dancing Around the Bride" Exhibit. This one will probably have great popular appeal.I find it interesting that "Outsider Art" is INSIDE the Philadelphia Museum of Art!

I must say, I'm very surprised that trash mobiles housed in a shed failed to cure cancer. More time and money should be invested in this research.

One time I made an art, but they wouldn't put it in this exhibit because it wasn't poorly drawn birds drawn on a discarded window shade.

Outsider art should stay outside. In the trash, outside.

I found this exhibit to be... pretty interesting. Much more interesting than I thought it would be. the artist showed there own "talent" threw there very own vision of what it meant to them, excellent.
