Paradise Garden is the internationally acclaimed 4-acre art environment and home of one of the most celebrated folk artists in the United States, Rev. Howard Finster (1916-2001). Over 40 years, Finster painted nearly 47,000 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 serves as a nonprofit historic site, regional art center, and nexus for artists, heart education, and serving the community.
