Intuit: The Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art promotes public awareness, understanding, and appreciation of intuitive and outsider art through education, exhibition, collecting and publishing.

Intuit believes the instinct to create is universal and the arts must embrace, celebrate and be accessible to everyone, regardless of education or socio-economic status. Through a series of exhibitions, publications, events and educational outreach, Intuit explores and advocates for the art of the untrainedvisionaries, non-traditional folk art creators, spiritualists, isolates, the mentally ill and the socially marginalized. Our exhibitions and educational programming strive to be a platform for personal inspiration and community development.
