Weekday Sketchers at American Folk Art Museum

AFAM's 'American Weathervanes' Exhibition Blows Open

What is a weathervane?  A useful tool or a work of art? 

 The current exhibit at the American Folk Art Museum tries to answer the question by taking this mundane tool and presents it as a work of art.  Join us as we admire the work left behind by craftsmen long gone. Their skill and the patina, weathered by time, will afford us an opportunity to capture these beautifully mundane objects in our sketchbooks. 

For more information on the exhibit please visit the museum website:
