Folk Art encompasses many varied and distinguishing factors, including roots in tradition, expression, and utility. Curator Laura Addison outlines Alexander Girard’s perspective on Folk Art, his collecting practices, and the design for his wing at the International Folk Art Museum. Curator Christine Knoke Hietbrink details a larger look at self-taught, vernacular and outsider art within the movement’s American history.
