AMERICAN FOLK ART MUSEUM • NYC

The American Folk Art Museum opened in NYC in 1961…….with 7000  artworks dating from the eighteenth century  to the present. Portraits and dazzling quilts by self taught artists in a variety of mediums.  The museum is right around the corner from my apartment………so I get to see every show.
