We're having a party–a birthday party! Join us April 12 as we celebrate the life of artist Henry Darger with a day of drop-in artmaking, gallery tours, live readings of his novel Realms of the Unreal, and talks presenting new research into his life and work. The day-long celebration will end with birthday cake and special surprises! Best of all, it's free to attend. See our story for a link to RSVP.
