The American Folk Art Museums dedicates its spring exhibition to the vast varieties of the American Experience. Selections from its permanent collection tell the story of Founders, Travelers, Philosophers, and Seekers. Central to the exhibition is the gathering of Possum Trot Dolls, carved and dressed by Calvin and Ruby Black in the 1950s. Quilts, of course, line the walls, with the interesting addition of a quilt-like sculpture made from recovered wood in Louisana. This is a great time to discover--or re-discover--American Folk Art.
