    This documentary takes a look at another side of the art world, its brilliance sometimes hiding behind ragged edges and everyday innocence. In this arena, rules mean nothing and open minds are fertile ground. If we open our eyes, we can all learn important lessons about art, its place in our society, and the validity of our own creative potential. This is the world of Outsider Art, or art created by the self-taught. This video profiles three such artists: collage artist Anne Gingrich, sculptor Tim Fowler, painters Helen Brom and John Hillier, and in so doing challenges us all on our ideas and responses to the age-old question: what is art?
