About Us

Paradise Garden is the internationally acclaimed 4-acre art environment and home of the most celebrated folk artist in America, Howard Finster (1916-2001). Over a 40 year. Finster crafted more than 46,000 works of contemporary American folk art including album covers for R. E. M., The Talking Heads, Adam Again and Blackhawk. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Paradise Garden is considered Finster's most important legacy and today serves as a nonprofit historic site, regional art center and nexus for artists, heart education, and serving the community.
