This fall, the High Museum of Art will present Really Free: The Radical Art of Nellie Mae Rowe (Sept. 3, 2021-Jan. 9, 2022), featuring nearly sixty works drawn from the Museum’s folk and self-taught art collection, which has the largest public holdings of Rowe’s art.

Really Free marks the Museum’s first partnership with the Art Bridges Foundation, an organization dedicated to expanding access to American art, which will allow the exhibition to travel nationally into 2023.
