Artist as Outlaw Day

Description

By some definitions, a true artist is one who breaks rules, shifts an art form in new directions, and makes people think in new ways, all while remaining true to their own artistic vision. These earthshaking artists can be seen as outlaws, as they rebel against the conventions of their time. While most outlaw artists forever remain outside of the mainstream, some popular stars have introduced avant-garde concepts and ideas—the Beatles and Bob Dylan being two examples. We celebrate all outlaw artists today, whether they work in visual arts, music, film, writing, or any other type of art.

Artist as Outlaw Day is observed next on Saturday, January 19th, 2019. It has always been observed annually on January 19th.

How to Observe

You could celebrate the day by making your art, or by exploring artists who can be classified as outlaw artists. There are hundreds of such artists, and some may be considered outlaws more so than others. The definition of who qualifies as an outlaw will shift depending on who you ask as well. The following is a list of some people who come to mind when we think of outlaw artists:
