The American Folk Art Museum is a free Museum in New York City. Yes, FREE. Art should be accessible to everyone. It would be odd if a museum dedicated to Folk Art wasn't free, but still.
Many people feel that art is out of reach for them. It is expensive to go to major museums, even for artists. Many galleries have a pretentious air to them. But in reality, art is about our world, and is what gets left behind from our cultures. It truly should be open to everyone.
Right now The American Folk Art Museum has a beautiful quilt exhibition open until June 5th, in addition to their permanent collection. The collection includes paintings, weathervanes, toys, quilts, and furniture made by self-taught artists.
