The American Folk Art Museum houses the single largest collections of work and drawing by Henry Darger. A major influence on a great many artists, Darger is one of the most important self-taught artists of the 20th-century. Up Close: Henry Darger, has been on view since 2008, but comes to a close early next month. The intimate exhibition draws highlights from the extensive archive at the Folk Art Museum. Catch it if you can.

A few more examples of Darger after the jump.
