For more than a century, Americans have collected, researched, exhibited, and celebrated materials that they identify as folk art. Yet what is placed in this category by scholars, collectors, and curators shifts constantly. Examine how definitions of American folk art have changed over time and analyze the historic dynamics that created, and continually revitalize, this art classification.
