Paradise Garden w/ Raymond & Ready or Not
Paradise Garden is a documentary film starring Howard Finster, Johnny Carson, Chris Frantz (Talking Heads/TomTom Club), Mike Mills (REM), Amy Ray (Indigo Girls), Cindy Wilson (B52s), and many more. The film shows the world that art thrives outside of museums in ordinary places and everyday objects. Howard Finster, the grandfather of Southern Folk Art, is remembered for creating the largest art installation in the United States. It continues to serve as inspiration to generations of iconic musicians and artists, as we capture his legacy through their stories.
He took what others might deem trash or obsolete and turned it into something contemplative. He opened Paradise Garden for the world to enjoy, a true testament that Art comes to life, when people are able to interact with it. Howard Finster showed the world that objects surrounding us can take on a new life, in a sometimes magical way, and communicate messages that can lead to transformation.
