A collection of “art that is felt with the heart,” A to Z Global Folk Art honors everyday art that embodies and reflects cultural identity. “We are excited to showcase a variety of eclectic art from local cultures around the world,” said Heidi Cross, Chair of the Museum’s Board of Directors. “Unlike items that are mass produced, folk art conveys the personality of the craftsperson as well as the artist’s culture and community. It is the art of the everyday by people with a creative spirit.” The exhibit features global folk art from over 20 contributors in Northern Colorado. Examples include a tapa cloth purse from Fiji, a Hindu goddess from Bali made from antique coins and gilded tree bark, and a Mikoshi puppet head from the mountains of western Japan. Admission: $5 adults, $3 seniors/students and $1 youth. [Organizer's description]
