Take a look inside Howard Finster’s Vision House, a massive, physical legacy of America Folk art. Wile the vision House is currently largely intact, it is through hard work and support from his fans that Howard’s vision is being kept alive, and his historic Vision House open to the public.

"Well, as far as I'm concerned, I'm not here to live a normal life. I'm sent here on a mission."

Finster began his art revolution in the basement, eventually producing just shy of 47,000 pieces: Intricate brightly colored paintings with Bible verses, quirky wooden status and sculptures made from other people's trash ​
