Before the creation of the Enchanted Highway, Gary Greff didn’t have an art or welding background. He was a junior high school principal and a fifth and sixth grade educator in Poplar, Montana. In 1989, the Regent, North Dakota native came back to his hometown to help his ageing parents and he noticed that his hometown’s population was drying up. “I saw that the town of Regent was dying and I had to do something”, Greff said.
Complaints from students in classes taught by Bonesteel led to the school's reduction of his teaching workload -- and to his decision to resign from his teaching post. Claims that SAIC discriminated against Outsider Art and banned Outsider Art texts have been refuted, and the school says it has not censored the content of Bonesteel’s courses.

...Martha Grunenwaldt only began to make art when she was 71. Living at her daughter Josine’s home in Mouscron, Belgium, she instinctively took up her grand-children’s colouring pencils and began to create a new world, making her distinctive colourful drawings. With an extraordinary energy, Grunenwaldt set to work, pouring out images day after day, filling up thousands of sheets of paper.
There are still sensational discoveries being made in the field of Outsider Art. One of them is the Klingebiel Cell in Göttingen, Lower Saxony, Germany. The hallway leads through barred gates to cell number 117, a dark dungeon that is 2.5 metres wide by 4 metres long (about 8 by 13 feet). Until 2013, the sun shone from the south through a high, barred window (today it is darkened for conservational purposes). The viewer goes through phases of astonishment and irritation.
'His buildings are a soothing oasis in the desert of functional architecture, precious stones in the grey monotony of the streets, creations of melodic rhythm among the dead mass surrounding them.' The German architect Josef Wiedemann (1) used these words to describe the work of Antoni Gaudí, but he might have been referring to Bruno Weber's Weinrebenpark (Grapevine Park), a proud rival to Gaudí's Parque Güell.
Sculptures are three dimensional. Drawings, generally speaking, are flat. Bas-reliefs may be both: thickened drawings with edges and shadows. An exhibit label years ago at the American Museum of Natural History, for pre-historic drawings surface-carved onto antlers by the slight removal of surrounding background material, described relief sculptures as probably the first sculptures.
Discovering these Taiwanese creators through that exhibition piqued my interest and set me off on a journey of exploration in search of other artists from that East Asian country. I hoped to find unusual and unique built environments in Taiwan, those which the French writer Jacques Lacarrière described as being "inspired by the edge of the roads".
From the evidence of his sketchbooks and the spray-painted or partly prepared sheets that were meant to serve as the surfaces of new works, items that were left behind when he died, it appears that Krüsi savoured the creative process and was a tireless experimenter.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
