Folk Out Loud!

Material Culture is celebrating the spirit, animation and theatricality of folk, self-taught and ethnographic arts in its May 26 auction, Folk Out Loud. Featuring over 300 lots, the sale will provide an exciting mix of art and artifacts from around the world, from paintings by important self-taught artists, to African tribal art, to American cigar store Indians. Objects at the auction nearly encompass the history of folk art, with pre-historic to 12th century to 21st century artifacts being presented for sale. This eclectic array of art will be on parade in an exhibition from May 18 to May 25, with the auction beginning promptly at 11 AM, on Sunday, May 26. Liveauctioneers provides an online catalogue and live internet bidding at the time of the sale.
