Shelter Island DVD
As the father of an autistic child, Jimmy Olinkiewicz saw something special in the outsider art of Harald Olson, a semi-homeless painter whose roadside gallery inspired Olinkiewicz to hire Olson to decorate the pumps at the gas station he owned in Shelter Island, NY. This moving documentary explores the blossoming friendship between the artist and his patron, which eventually led both men to an elite exhibition of Olson's beautifully abstract paintings in Manhattan. 76 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English.
