American Folk Art Museum

The American Folk Art Museum explores the art of the self-taught, from the 18th century to the present. It attempts to understand folk art through the unconventional paths and experiences of those who create it, and how their personal expression relates to American culture. The collection of over 7,000 works ranges from early quilts and portraits to decorative arts, illustration, photography, and sculpture.
