UNDATED (AP) -- "Silence of the Lambs" director Jonathan Demme (DEM'-ee) is unloading his art collection. Demme plans to sell 90 percent of his well-regarded collection of outsider art, or art made by people with little formal training. Demme's collection focuses on the art of Haiti and other Caribbean countries but includes the art of other nations as well. Demme says he loves fine art but there's something about that sincere work of an outsider artist that turns him on. More than 900 pieces will be auctioned at Philadelphia's Material Culture at the end of March. Demme will donate part of the proceeds to the rebuilding efforts in Haiti after the 2010 earthquake.
