Folk Art Road Trip: Travels with Modernism’s Utility Infielder

Columbus Museum of Art

February 1, 2020 – February 7, 2021
Folk Art Road Trip presents a stellar mix of vanguard and vernacular artworks from CMA’s collection in a visual narrative that celebrates how mainstream modern artists from Elie Nadelman to Andy Warhol, “found” and “invented” political, aesthetic, and spiritual utility for the art of their folk and self-taught counterparts.

Watch Michael Hall discuss the exhibition in detail below.
