An Introduction to the Imaginative

Art is in the eye of the beholder. In the galleries of the folk art museum, you’ll discover an amazing variety of paintings, sculptures, and other objects created by talented, self-trained artists and craftsmen. In fact, it’s one of the largest collections of American folk art.

View more upcoming events in our calendar.

Take in the bold colors, simplified shapes, and imaginative surface patterns in a variety of paintings, carvings, toys, and needlework. Bring children Down on the Farm into a kid-friendly, animal-focused exhibition.

Exhibited on the walls and hung from the ceilings, expressions of folk art appear before you. Look at the details expressed in the color choices on the canvases. Move close to one of the elaborate quilts and imagine the hours required to arrange the fabric and place each stitch. Appreciate the craftsmanship and attention to detail in objects created “of the people.”

You’ll want to return frequently to examine these expressions crafted by untrained artists.
