Folk Art in the South: Selections from the Permanent Collection
June 11, 2016 - September 11, 2016
Drawn from the Morris Museum’s permanent collection, this presentation included work by some of the region’s best-known folk artists. Though the work of some of these artists may have been familiar, much of it had not been exhibited before. Folk artists’ major themes were expressed in many different ways. They employed readily accessible materials—crayons, markers, house paint—as well as found objects, to produce their paintings, drawings, and sculpture, putting mundane materials to fresh and ingenious uses. This installation underscored the Morris Museum’s status as one of the leading collectors of folk art in the region.
