    Neither Common nor Everyday: The Barbara L. Gordon Folk Art Collection

    Saturday November 19, 2016 / 2 – 3:30 pm

    Join guest curator of A Shared Legacy: Folk Art in America, Richard Miller as he examines the aesthetic and meaning of the large body of work that has come to be known as American Folk Art.  The paintings, sculpture, and furniture in the Gordon collection were made between 1800 and 1920–years that bookend a period of rapid and dramatic change in the United States.  The art in this exhibition represents a period that may feel distant, but these objects that held special meaning for Americans show that their aspirations were little different from ours today: celebration of family, pride in heritage, and leaving some evidence of our lives and accomplishments after us.
