A celebration of American Folk Art
Mon 21 November 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm GMT
American Museum and Gardens founder Dallas Pratt had a personal love of folk art – everyday art made by artists without formal academic training. It is unsurprising that when he and John Judkyn created the museum in Bath they included a large and unique collection of American folk art: paintings, sculptures, textiles, shop signs and weathervanes.
Kate Herbert, Chief Curator and Jan English, Collections and Public Engagement Director, will be showcasing this fascinating collection including works from well-known artists such as Grandma Moses. Join us as we celebrate this joyful artwork of the people, for the people.
