Featuring works from the WVU Collection
What happens when a work of folk art or self-taught art is displayed in a fine-at museum? Are labels like ‘folk,’ ’self-taught,’ ‘fine,’ ‘primitive’ even useful, or do they prejudice viewers’ perceptions of the art? Dr. Rosemary Hathaway, Associate Professor of English at WVU, will look at several works in the Impulse: A Trip Inside exhibit, all in the same medium of carved wood, to explore these questions.
Free and open to the public.
