Darger's Use of Ephemera

  • Aired: 08/02/2005
  • 03:17
  • Rating: NR
In the second clip associated with the "In the Realms of the Unreal": The Artist and Society lesson plan, Henry Darger's neighbors and acquaintances talk about his collection of newspapers and ephemera that he used in his artwork. Students should consider the fact that the use of images from the advertising media of his time gives Darger's work a "look" that ties it to a time period.
