About the Exhibition

"Oh I am a lonely painter I live in a box of paints." – Joni Mitchell (painter/singer/songwriter) excerpted from her song, "A Case of You"

The American Visionary Art Museum (AVAM) presents Mr. Eddy Lives!, featuring 109 paintings and portraits by the late Florida outsider artist Eddy Mumma (aka Mr. Eddy), a recluse and double amputee whose solace and delight was in the production of explosively joyful paintings. The largest and most comprehensive exhibition of Mr. Eddy's work to date, this voluminous yearlong show was on view 2015-2016 at AVAM.
