Primitive Roadside Vendor Signs

Sure, you could go to the Warhol Museum or the Tate Modern (or just keep your eyes peeled for fake Keith Haring graffiti), but some of the best Outsider Pop Art can be found by simply trolling the backroads of Interzone.

If some young enterprising upstart or jaded old cultural appropriator hasn't already pounced on the idea yet, somebody should do a big NYC gallery exhibition of hand-painted boiled peanut signs from Georgia, Louisiana and Florida. Who can say it isn't beautiful?
