American Perspectives: Stories from the American Folk Art Museum Collection opened on Friday, Feb. 11 at Jacksonville’s Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens. The exhibit celebrates American folk art and artists.

Showcasing more than 80 works of art dating from the 18th century to modern day, by artists hailing from across the country, the exhibit’s launch has been a long-awaited event for the museum’s curatorial team.

New York-based American Folk Art Museum organized the exhibit, supported by Art Bridges, a foundation devoted to “creating and supporting programs that expand access to American art in all regions across the nation.”
