Dear Friends and Supporters of the American Folk Art Museum,
As we move into 2012, I must share the great sense of excitement and opportunity that my fellow Trustees, the Museum’s staff, and I feel as the American Folk Art Museum begins its second 50 years. There is no doubt we have experienced challenges, but we are entering a dynamic new phase, and we are thinking creatively for the future. I hope you will join us as we begin to reimagine, revitalize, and reinvent the Museum—our new “three R’s.” If you have already made a gift this year, we deeply appreciate your support. If not, I hope you will visit our website to become a member or make a fully tax-deductible contribution this year. Your contribution ensures that the Museum can continue to create exhibitions that delight the viewer and expand the boundaries of folk art scholarship. The American Folk Art Museum embraces the irrepressible nature of American folk art and the singular expressions of self-taught artists from the 18th century through the present—art that is as surprising, intimate, and unpredictable as the lives and circumstances from which it emerges.
Together, we will continue to explore and share the exciting creativity, discipline, talent, and vision of the many artists, renowned and unheralded, known and anonymous, who we have collected, and who we respect and cherish.
Thank you for your past, present, and future support!
