George Widener

Artist

A self-taught artist and calendar savant, Widener creates mixed-media works on paper that give aesthetic, visible form to complex calculations based on dates and historical events.

Widener, who sometimes likens himself to a “time traveler,” is highly visible in the contemporary art arena and has had significant film and media exposure. Widener’s work is in many international private collections and museums, including the American Folk Art Museum in New York, the Kroller-Muller Museum in the Netherlands, and the Collection de l’Art Brut in Lausanne, Switzerland.
