The Delaware Art Museum
presents Out of the Commonplace:   The Folk Art of Delaware , featuring over 30 paintings,
sculptures, quilts, and woodworks by Delaware artists, on view May 16, 2009 –
August 16, 2009.
  Part of
the Museum’s Outlooks Exhibition Series, this exhibition was organized in collaboration with
the Delaware Folk Art Collection, a program of Delaware State Parks. Folk
artists bring their individual creativity to the routine and necessary objects
of daily life.  Self-taught, they express the traditional and
artistic values of their community.  
Their craft is often passed down from one generation to the next, leaving
a legacy for all to share.
