About

Every town has at least one—a house covered with hubcaps or homemade signs or flattened beer cans, or surrounded with hundreds of dolls dangling from the trees or shaped like a flying saucer—the kind of places one might take friends from out of town when one wants to amaze them with something really local and truly unusual. Gregg Museum director Roger Manley has visited hundreds of places like this, and leads the audience on a trip through the offbeat world of self-taught creativity.
