International Folk Art Museum, New Mexico
Folk Art is the art of the everyday which comes from the traditions of community and culture. Home to the world's largest collection of folk art, Santa Fe's remarkable collection of 135,000 artifacts originates from more than 100 countries and six continents. A family favorite is the permanent exhibition "Multiple Visions: A Common Bond." The works on display include toys and dolls that any child would love to play with; as well as costumes, and masks. Textiles of all kinds, religious folk art, paintings, beadwork, and household items, many displayed as they were found in homes, round out the collections.
