Weird Artists: Minnie Adkins
This is another piece from my planned chapter on Kentucky artists for the book that almost made it to press but ultimately ended up on the cutting room floor. It was partially because I was concerned that a popular country folk artist just wasn't intrinsically "weird" enough to merit inclusion in the book. (On the other hand, them there big-city fellers up North probably think we're all weird down there.)
But here on the UnK blog, I take a far wider and more inclusive scope than in the book, so here's Minnie! Click on the image to see the page mockup of what would have been Minnie's page in the book.
