Description
LATIN AMERICAN FOLK ART - 

BURT AND BRENDA LAZAR GALLERY





Latin American folk art is a source of pride by the artisans who make it and the communities and countries from which it originates. This exhibition features more than 200 works of 20th century Latin American folk art from some of the most acclaimed folk artists from Mexico, Ecuador, Peru, and other Latin American countries. Including devotional and ritual objects, depictions of festivals and everyday life, utilitarian objects, and trees of life, this exhibition is a selection of the museum’s collection of more than 2,000 folk art objects given by more than fifteen donors. They reveal a harmony of the utilitarian, the ceremonial, and the decorative. Created with exuberant colors, rich imagination, and reverence for tradition, these works speak of the resilience, resourcefulness, and creativity of individuals and cultures.
