American Folk Art Museum ~ NYC ~ Part 2

The Show Continues...

Note: Ann has asked, "Where is the
museum relocating to?"  Actually, the
American Folk Art Museum has had
two locations.  Their smaller space at
Lincoln Square in NYC will remain open.
Great that we will still have an opportunity
to view folk art but sad that we will have
less space to view it. ~ Ellen

As the American Folk Art Museum
closed its doors on its main location,
as an American Folk Artist, I was
glad I could be there to kiss it goodbye.

Just another reminder to Support the Arts!
