Outsider Art? Tattooing from Lew the Jew to Today

May 16 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free – $12

Tattoos, once a way to mark oneself as an outsider, have dramatically grown in popularity and mainstream acceptance. Join tattoo impresarios Ami James (Miami Ink, INK the Original), Roxx (2SpiritTattoo), Kari Barba (Outer Limits), Adam Vu Noir (StrangeLove), and panel organizer and moderator, Takahiro Kitamura (State of Grace Tattoo) for a discussion of the changes and challenges of tattoo art as it has evolved since the time of Lew the Jew.

Presented in conjunction with “Lew the Jew and His Circle: Origins of American Tattoo,” an exhibition that examines the work of “Lew the Jew” Alberts (born Albert Morton Kurzman, 1880-1954), one of America’s most influential tattoo artists at the beginning of the twentieth century.

$12 general (includes Museum admission); free for students with ID.
