I'm going to France and I'd love to see some outsider art/folk art/art brut. Suggestions? (more inside)

I’ll be staying with friends in Paris and I’m hoping to do some day trips to environments nearby. I found this helpful site
, and I have a list of 40 environments culled from the book Self Made Worlds
(mostly just names and towns, no idea if they are open to the public, so it didn’t get me too far.) Le Palais Idéal
is the most famous but Lyons may be too far for this trip. La Maison Pique-Assiette
in Chartes is a strong possibility. Anything in or around Paris that’s a must see? Any gallery shows or exhibitions I should check out? Bonus points for anything we don’t need a car to get to.
