Art Environments in the Midwestern United States

Art environments are typically made by by artists working outside the mainstream of contemporary art.  Exposed to the weather and free for public viewing, the environments have little or no connection to the monetized art-object-based realm of galleries and museums.  Often the ‘artists’ don’t think of themselves as, or like to be called ‘artists’, their work may carry religious messages, or be more personal in nature than an artistic statement made in the context of a wider art world.
