Overview

60 mins) Enter the world of Pete Cecere, one of the preeminent collectors of folk art and outsider art in North America, as he finds permanent homes for his “kids” – the more than 5,000 pieces of original art that are currently housed in his Virginia home – before he dies. He thinks his house is the star of the show. But it’s Cecere’s bursting passion for his collection, his fondness for the often struggling artists who are driven to leave an artistic mark on the world, which steals this show. Cecere has made it his life’s work to honor those artists who receive little recognition, but who boast an abundant passion for fulfilling the demands of their creative spirit. The 60-minute film will be followed by a Q&A with Director Matt White, moderated by AVAM’s Founder & Director Rebecca Hoffberger. Light concessions will be available for purchase at the event. Note: the screening will be held after normal museum hours and AVAM’s galleries will be closed. Museum admission is not included in ticket price. $10 - General public.
