Podcast Interview with Debra Kerr, Executive Director, Intuit Center for Intuitive & Outsider Art
Debra Kerr has served since 2014 as executive director of Intuit: The Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art in Chicago. Founded in 1991, Intuit celebrates the power of outsider art, a mission grounded in the ethos that the instinct to create is universal—the arts must embrace and be accessible to all, regardless of education level or socioeconomic status. Intuit is one of the world’s premier museums of outsider art, the work of artists with little influence from the mainstream art world. Enjoy this thought-provoking conversation with Deb on what we can learn from outsider artists about transformative power of imagination, creating to create vs needing to have an audience, healing our own pain and get the back story on several of Intuit exhibits!
