Darger on POV

Tonight is the premier of In The Realms of the Unreal on POV (check your local listings! MPT won't have it for another week and then only seems to play it in the early morning hours, so set your TiVo, Dug).

The film is about Henry Darger, the Chicago janitor by day, visionary artist by night.

And people say Baltimore has freaks. Well, we do have a whole museum for them.

Wow! I wish I could see it. I went to a big exhibition of Darger's works when I was in New York -- I think it was held at the Folk Art Museum or something like that, near Lincoln Center. Seeing the drawings in real life, close up, was really interesting. Some were like 25 feet long.
