Opening - Out of the Ordinary: Selections from the Bohlen Wood Art and Fusfeld Folk Art Collections

Mose Tolliver - Self-Portrait (detail) - 20th century - house paint on plywood - University of Michigan Museum of Art, Gift of the Daniel and Harriet Fusfeld Folk Art Collection, 2002/1.193This exhibition allows visitors to explore two extraordinary collections of art—the Robert M. and Lillian Montalto Bohlen Collection of Wood Art and the Daniel and Harriet Fusfeld Folk Art Collection. The Bohlen collection presents an astonishing range of contemporary artworks fashioned from wood and includes works that explore traditional and non-traditional vessel forms as well as works that are more purely sculptural. The outstanding objects that make up the Fusfeld collection are both geographically and historically wide-ranging, including work by early nineteenth-century itinerant folk portraitists as well as late twentieth-century sculpture and painting by "outsider" artists from the American South, Midwest, and Northeast.

This exhibition is made possible in part by the Charles H. and Katherine C. Sawyer Endowment and the Richard and Rosann Noel Endowment Fund.
