Wisconsin Folk Art: A Sesquicentennial Celebration

by

Wisconsin Folk Art: A Sesquicentennial Celebration Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

    This delightful book, amply illustrated with color and black-and-white photographs, captures the significant role such traditional arts as basketmaking, needlework, and decoy carving continue to play in the daily life of many Wisconsinites. Several chapters by folklorists provide a context for understanding the ways folk artists use their work to connect the past and present, express ethnic identity, celebrate community, and live creatively off the land.

    This book is a companion to an exhibit that appeared at the Cedarburg Cultural Center (Dec. 97-Feb. 98), the Neville Public Museum in Green Bay (March-May 98), the State Historical Museum in Madison (June-Oct. 98), and the Chippewa Valley Museum in Eau Claire (Nov.-Feb. 99).

Distributed for the Cedarburg Cultural Center.
