MILWAUKEE (AP) - The Milwaukee Art Museum is showcasing nearly 600 pieces of folk art in a new exhibition.
The exhibit is called "Uncommon Folk: Traditions in American Art." It features paintings, drawings, sculpture, photography, textiles, furniture, and decorative arts from its own collection.
Among the artists represented are Grandma Moses, Edgar Tolson, Felipe Archuleta, Howard Finster, Sister Gertrude Morgan and Morris Hirshfield.
The exhibition will also highlight several Wisconsin artists including Prophet Blackmon, Josephus Farmer, Michael Lenk and Albert Zahn.
Exhibition curator Margaret Andera says some works were created within the cultural traditions of a particular geographic area and others are rooted in the function of an object, such as duck decoys.
It runs through May 4.
