The Run Down

If there was a word to describe this guide, it would be "appreciation." We're spending the afternoon at a museum that, for the past three decades, has allowed visitors to appreciate works from self-taught artists outside of the mainstream art community. In many cases, these artists often lived with mental illness or had other circumstances that kept them from pursuing a more traditional art career. Afterwards, we keep the on the same theme and head to a nearby nondescript bodega in the middle of a residential neighborhood. There's so much more to this bodega than meets the eye and we step inside to find out what makes this place special.
