Speakers BureauTalks and Living History Presentations for Your Community
Vermont Folk Art
Much of Vermont’s folk art is narrative in impulse: a stair rug capturing the history of a family, a weathervane symbolizing the artist’s career in the railroad, or a quilt representing the memories of farm life.
This slide presentation and lecture by Jane Beck touches on the informal process of learning a traditional art, life crises that spur the creation of folk art, and the emotional bond that exists between the maker and the receiver of a folk art object.
