Jesse Howard: Thy Kingdom Come 

If you think of Fulton, it's most likely in connection to the famous speech Winston Churchill delivered at Westminster College in 1946. But there's more. Outsider artist star Jesse Howard is also associated with Fulton. Howard was a self-taught artist and an earnest evangelist, and from such ingredients a strange brew will always ferment. A new exhibition, Thy Kingdom Come, showcases Howard's wild hand-painted signs, the religious proclamations rendered upon them being his signature medium of expression. The artist's vituperations made him unpopular for years in Fulton, but check him now -- in death, the old boy's hot.
