Perspectives: Setting the Scene in American Folk Art not only features a slew of terrific works, but also marks a new and positive shift in institutional policy. For the first time, with Perspectives, the American Folk Art Museum’s Education Department has organized an exhibition. Drawing from a firm understanding of audience experience, the exhibition explores notions of space and place in American Folk Art. The result is far reaching and hits on several different depictions that offer a full view of the American experience.
Perspectives: Setting the Scene in American Folk Art runs to August 15, 2010.
A few more examples of included works follow.
