One of the most important international events - the Art Colony, the Museum of Naive and Marginal Art has been organizing for three and a half decades, continuously affirming the most significant representatives of the authentic phenomena of the non-academic art scene. Biennially gathering naïve artists since 1984 and sculptors since 1992, the Museum of Naïve and Marginal Art develops Art Colony as a review, affirmation and stimulus to the most valuable realisations, firstly in domestic and later international naïve and marginal art.
The ambiences which served to artists as powerful sources of spiritual potentials were selected for locations; they were either authentic treasures of cultural heritage or the nature itself as an inexhaustible origin of inspiration and initiator of creative introspection and expression. In the period from 1984-1992 the artists were doing art in the Museum environment, and then from 1994 Colonies were held at guest quarters of Monastery St. Prohor Pčinjski. In 2000 the Colony was held in Zobnatica, and the next two in Lisine. The gatherings of naïve and marginal artists have been organised on Zlatibor since 2006, within the tourist complex Kraljevi Konaci.
In the period from 1984-2018, Museum of Naïve and Marginal Art organised twenty colonies, thus gathering 130 artists from about twenty countries. Through the work of colonies of naïve and marginal art during the last four and a half decades, continuous follow up of artistic creation of large number of generations and individual expressions of naïve and marginal artists was realised, while the Museum Collection and documentation centre were significantly enriched.
