Art of Consumption: Folk Art and Sustainability

The Museum of International Folk Art and the International Folk Art Market present "Art of Consumption: Folk Art and Sustainability." This exhibition explores what we consume, what we throw away, and its impact on the environment and climate change. This show highlights folk artists whose work shines a light on environmental crises and removes materials from the waste stream to create objects of beauty. All of the featured artists are participants in the 2020 International Folk Art Market in Santa Fe.
