"Almost There" one-inch buttons printed in glow in the dark, and full color.

Opening this weekend at Intuit, the The Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art in Chicago, is an exhibit featuring the work of Peter Anton, a 78 year-old resident of East Chicago, Indiana.

He, “creates paintings that illuminate moments of significance from his personal history based on photographs he has obsessively compiled into a massive autobiography titled “Almost There.”

Co-curators Dan Rybicky and Aaron Wickenden discovered Peter creating portraits during a visit to Pierogi Fest, and spent the past four years documenting Peter’s environment and day-to-day life of creating art under brutal conditions.”

Featured are custom one-inch buttons printed glow-in-the-dark and full color celebrating the works for the art opening.  Here’s your chance to experience the art for yourself!
