Lloyd's Treasure Chest: Folk Art in Focus
Sun, Jan 29, 2017 thru Tue, Jan 29, 2019
ongoing 11:59 PM - 11:59 PM
Location: Museum of International Folk Art

After an extensive renovation, the Museum of International Folk Art will reopen Lloyd's Treasure Chest: Folk Art in Focus. The gallery will offer visitors a place to explore, interact, and create folk art. Because the Museum's entire 136,000-object collection can never be on view at the same time, collections are carefully stored and cared for in rooms such as the Neutrogena Vault, which visitors can view from the Treasure Chest gallery. Visitors will take “the vehicle to the vault” to the museum's lower level where the collection vault is located. The exhibition presents new ways to think about folk art and its cultural context with books, maps, and baskets they can touch, as well as explore intangible forms of expressive culture, like music. While there is no one definition of folk art, Lloyd's Treasure Chest embodies multiple perspectives and helps us come closer to an understanding of “What is Folk Art?” Patrons of all ages will find engaging participatory experiences with hands-on activities such as origami-making, kite-coloring, a community basket-making activity, and a musical instrument (a Javanese gamelan instrument). visit our website
No Idle Hands: The Myths & Meanings of Tramp Art

onetime 11:59 PM - 11:59 PM
Location: Museum of International Folk Art

The exhibition will present more than 150 examples of tramp art, a particular type of chip-carved woodwork that was practiced in Europe and the United States between the 1870s and 1940s, making use of discarded cigar boxes or crates that were then notch-carved along the edges and layered. Additionally, the show will analyze and dismantle the myths and misperceptions about tramp art, particularly as they relate to assumptions related to class, quality, and the anonymity of the makers. visit our website
