Howard Finster’s Obituary in the New York Times
Dave and I had the profound pleasure and honor to visit Finster’s Paradise Gardens in Summerville, GA. It is a HIGHLY recommended pilgrimage for anyone interested in folk art. It was a mind bending, life altering view of the world that makes you want to reevaluate your own life in terms of what you can do and what you stand for.
