“Jubilation | Rumination”
Only 15 places available
LANDMARK WEST! celebrates the relocation of the American Folk Art Museum, founded in 1961, to its new permanent home on the Upper West Side (2 Lincoln Square, Columbus Ave. at West 66th St.).
In the January 26, 2012 Arts section of The New York Times, Ken Johnson described “Jubilation | Rumination” as “a wonderful exhibition of works from the permanent collection” that “samples all varieties of artistic expression under the institution’s purview, from traditional genres like portraits and quilts; sculptures made of bottle caps and similarly curious materials; and otherworldly fantasies drawn and painted by so-called Outsiders.”
*LANDMARK WEST! members will get preference to purchase tickets until Monday, February 20, 2012 at close of business. Tickets will then become available to the general public.
