Where-To-Go Wednesday - Memory Palaces: Inside the Collection of Audrey B. Heckler


What: Memory Palaces: Inside the Collection of Audrey B. Heckler

Where: American Folk Art Museum
             2 Lincoln Square
             New York, NY

Who: Teens and Up

When: Through January 26, 2020

  
  

Mom's view: The current exhibit at the American Folk Art Museum is quite an eclectic collection. It includes the work of many different artists including Emery Blagdon, Aloise Corboz, and Augustin Lesage. It's main unifying theme is that it is part of the collection of Audrey B. Heckler, a longtime patron of the museum. She is one of the leading collectors of artwork by self taught artists. The focus of the exhibit is on each individual artist and their work of art. It is is called Memory Places because it is all about what memories each work of art evokes in each individual. If you are interested in seeing this unique collection, you only have a few days because the exhibit will be closing on January 26. 2020.
