Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg, FL
Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg, FL
The Museum of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg, Fla., will be presenting a number of works from its burgeoning collection of contemporary self-taught art during the Folk Art Society of America's annual conference, October 29-November 1, 2009. Highlights from the Museum of Fine Arts' Folk Art Collection will be featured at the museum from October through December 2009. The Museum of Fine Arts is primarily known for its collection of more traditional western painting and sculpture from the late 18th to the early 20th centuries. However, historical works of American folk art, including paintings from the Chrysler-Garbisch Collection and a selection of Pennsylvania German decorative arts, are in the museum's permanent collection. In 1996, the Birmingham Museum of Art held the exhibition Pictured in My Mind: Contemporary American Self-Taught Art from the Collection of Dr. Kurt Gitter and Alice Rae Yellen while Dr. John E. Schloder was director there. In 2001, Schloder came to the Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg, as director. His view of art has continued to include contemporary folk art. In 2000, the museum mounted its first exhibition of European folk art, The Fantastical World of Croatian Naive Art. In the Spring of 2007, the museum organized Compelling Visions: Florida Collects Folk Art, the first exhibition of contemporary American self-taught art featured at the museum. This exhibition drew primarily from seven extraordinary private collections in the Tampa Bay area, and members of the Folk Art Society will visit some of these during the conference, notably the collections of Tom and Donna Brumfield, Ted and Jean Weiller and George Lowe....
