Nellie Mae Rowe (1900-1982) was a self-taught African
American artist from Georgia whose creativity knew no bounds.
The Art of Nellie Mae Rowe: Ninety-Nine-and-a-Half Won't Do
(named after one of her favorite gospel songs) is the first
nationally traveling museum exhibition to explore the full range
of her art.
The exhibition features Rowe's wildly inventive
drawings, chewing gum sculptures, life-sized rag dolls and
photographs of the artist in her one-of-a-kind, Vinings, GA
home and garden that she called Nellie's Playhouse. After
receiving high acclaim in New York at the Museum of American
Folk Art and in Washington, D. C., at the National Museum of
Women in the Arts, Rowe's works are finally coming home.
The Art of Nellie Mae Rowe: Ninety-Nine-and-a-Half Won't Do is organized by the Museum of American Folk Art,
New York. The exhibition and catalogue are made possible with the generous support of The Andy Warhol Foundation
for the Visual Arts and The Judith Rothschild Foundation.
