detour art website

  • With Detour Art, designer and author Kelly Ludwig has created a portable art environment, a verbally elegant and visually stunning homage to the artists who are the backbone of the American art world.  A must-read destination for all those already interested in or just curious about visionary, outsider, folk art, and art brut.

I have a passion for self taught art. Detour Art was comprised of art from my collection and photographs taken while traveling around the country to meet artists and visit visionary environments.


The website:

Detour Art is a web-based reference library of over 3700 outsider and visionary artists, folk art environments and sites, as well as outsider art galleries, museums and collections. Its creation lead to the book of the same name. Then a traveling exhibit.
