Grassroots Museum

Grassroots art is created by self-taught individuals, usually during their retirement years. Often driven by a vision, they work for many years, creating an environment meant to be viewed as a whole. Many times the artist is inspired by seemingly useless recycled items. These environments are difficult to preserve and often deteriorate or are dismantled when the artist dies.

Garden of Eden – Lucas, Kansas

The Garden of Eden in Lucas, KS, is the oldest intact folk art environment in the United States. In 1907, at the age of 62, Civil War veteran Samuel Perry Dinsmoor began construction of this unusual site. S.P. Dinsmoor, a retired Civil War Veteran, started building the Cabin Home and Garden of Eden in 1904 at the age of 64. His sculptures are as interesting as his biography, with each and every element having a story to tell.
