Different Strokes for Different Folks May 15, 2022

 The Folk Art Museum is a wonderful place to visit (and it is free.) Folk art is self taught art and is rooted in traditions that come from community and culture. Examples include: weather vanes, old store signs and carved figures, itinerant portraits, carousel horses, fire buckets, painted game boards, cast iron doorstops and many other similar lines of highly collectible “whimsical” antiques. For six decades, the American Folk Art Museum’s exhibition program has inspired critical acclaim and public interest while breaking new scholarly ground. This current installation in the Audrey B. Heckler Gallery highlights key exhibitions in the history of the Museum and features a selection of beloved works of art and rarely seen documents from the Museum’s archives. I shared another wonderful exhibit from this space last summer called Blowin’ in the Wind.

I love this museum. Thanks for the great pics Judy!
And quick question – do you happen to know what you would call a painting made by a cat? Yep – it’s a paw-trait. 🙂

It is a wonderful Museum, thanks! I did love it when they moved to their own building (gorgeous building) next to MoMA. But then “greed” ended that. Such a shame. Thanks for the pictures/memories.

I have been to their “old” space since they left 53rd St. It is an okay space, and their exhinits are still wonderful.
