A New Gift Revealed

Museum Director Gail Andrews unveils an exciting gift to the BMA folk art collection consisting of over 400 objects by artists working across the South in the 20th century. It includes paintings, sculptures, quilts, and works on paper. They are primarily by Alabama artists such as Sybil Gibson, Jimmie Lee Sudduth, Benjamin Perkins, and Fred Webster to name just a few.

This program is for people who want to learn more about art in an informative and interactive setting. These programs, with the exception of June, are held on the first Thursday of each month, January through October. Coffee and light refreshments are available. Tours are led by curators or guest lecturers, and attendees are encouraged to ask questions, share thoughts and ideas, and actively participate in the learning process.
