Bill Traylor's Second Exhibition Was Here

Famed Outsider Art artist Bill Traylor (circa 1854-1949), a former slave, had his second show here. According to an article by Don Johnson in the Maine Antique Digest, December 2015, at p. 26E, By 1942 interest in Traylor's art had spread beyond Alabama, and 'Bill Traylor: American Primitive (Work of an Old Negro)' opened at the Ethical Culture Fieldston School in Riverdale, New York. The event was a commercial failure.
