AMERICAN FOLK ART
Have you wondered what American Folk Art is? Who were the artists? How does Folk Art reflect the growth and change in a young America during the early years of our nation’s history? We’ll look at some of the important Folk Art collections that have been assembled in the past 40 years and examine some of the most iconic and important works by a variety of known and unknown Folk Artists. Paintings and drawings, sculpture, painted furniture, textiles, the creation of decorative utilitarian objects all demonstrate the importance of art in the lives of everyday Americans. You will receive complimentary copies of two catalogs, The Authentic Eye and American Folk Art.
