Museum of International Folk Art in Santa Fe.

One of the most fascinating part of our trip was to the Museum of International Folk Art in Santa Fe.

Two of the exhibitions were outstandin, but I'm having a problem uploading photos so I did it in my gallery…

We could have stayed there all day, but we only had 3 hours because we had other museums to see.

If you are ever in this vicinity… please take the time to view it.

Material World presents a tantalizing glimpse into the Museum of International Folk Art's largest collection of textiles and costumes stored in 57 closets and numerous trunks and drawers.

The 138 rarely-seen items in this exhibition highlight the remarkable breadth and depth of 20,000 objects ranging from everyday household articles to elaborately detailed ceremonial wear in the Museum's textile collection.


View the images in my gallery.

The other exhibition we enjoyed was:-

The Arts of Survival:
Folk Expression in the Face of Natural Disaster explores how folk artists have helped their communities recover from four recent natural disasters: the Haitian Earthquake; Hurricane Katrina on the U.S. Gulf Coast; floods in Pakistan; and the volcanic eruption of Mt. Merapi in Indonesia.
