The Abby Aldrich Rockefeller
Folk Art Museum
Colonial and contemporary artists and craftspeople work outside the mainstream of academic art to record aspects of everyday life, making novel and effective use of the materials at hand. Bold colors, simplified shapes, and imaginative surface patterns can be seen in the variety of paintings, carvings, toys, needlework they create.
The Folk Art Museum offers changing exhibitions of American folk art from its permanent holdings and museum loan shows.
The Museum Store features an array of distinctive gifts. Items ranging from folk art by contemporary artists to note cards and books complement the museum's collection of American folk art.
The Museum Café offers sandwiches, soups, beverages and desserts. Learn more
