A Shared Legacy: Folk Art in America Preview Event

Thursday, January 18, 2018 - 5:30pm

A Shared Legacy: Folk Art in America tells the story of extraordinary American folk art made in New England, the Midwest, Mid-Atlantic, and the South between 1800 and 1925. This exhibit, created by innovated and self-taught artists, showcases all forms of art: rare portraits, vivid still-life paintings, allegorical scenes, whimsical trade signs, animal sculptures, and distinctive examples of furniture from the German-American community. These works exemplify American creativity during an influential period of history that included enormous political, social, and cultural change in the United States.
