If the big museums of New York don’t interest you, or if you’ve seen them all, then you have a chance to see some more unique, non-mainstream art this weekend at the Outsider Art Fair at the Metropolitan Pavilion. It started as a way to showcase artists who are outside of the mainstream and continues to do so today. The art can be seen this Thursday-Sunday. Enjoy!
