Folk Art Matters

May 17, 2014 – 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

For thousands of years, cultures around the globe have created folk art – art produced by members of a social or ethnic group that reflects their traditions. Folk art transcends barriers, forges human connections, and brings opportunity to artisans everywhere. Join us for a dynamic conversation with artists and designers as we explore the importance of folk art and tradition in a modern world.

This discussion panel is in association with the Empowering Women: Artisan Cooperatives that Transform Communities exhibition, which has been organized by the Museum of International Folk Art in Sante Fe, NM, and circulated through GuestCurator Traveling Exhibitions.

This discussion panel is free with museum admission. RSVP for the panel below.
