Folk Art

Folk art expresses cultural identity by conveying shared community values and aesthetics, and often reflect ethnic, tribal, or religious beliefs. Folk art encompasses a range of utilitarian and decorative media, including cloth, wood, paper, clay, metal and more. From Sweden’s Dala Horse to Puerto Rico’s vejigantes and Slovenia’s beehive panels, the stories behind the world’s folk art traditions are as unique as the individual artists who create these works.
