Make a Visit to the American Folk Art Museum

30 Dec

Child's Blanket

 

Entering the museum it was so inviting pretty much if it is a rainy day with a bit of ice falling from the sky the warmth tends to relax you. There is a suggested $5 donation or whatever you can afford to help them continue to share American Folk Art. On the the walls of the entrance there was a quilt that is a tribute to 9/11 and the aircrafts that crash during New York’s hardest time. Although, it is just one floor it is enough to grasp the concept with its many foil art paintings and sculptures. One thing I did notice the photographs within the paintings reminded me of the photographs you would see in a horror film when the characters find old photographs in a box inside a haunted house. On another note before I instill fear into some hearts, there many historical figures such as Lincoln, George Washington and many more….

Finally, before leaving we made a stop the gift shop with many little trinkets, toys, hats, jewelry, a cheeseboard, and some JouJou doll that I wasn’t so crazy about, it spooked me out. I do recommend buying a little memory or grab a pamphlet just to have as a reminder you have been there. I tend to keep a journal (would it be childish to call it a diary?) To keep record of the people, places I visited, and moments within my life. it is just so you can be able to look back at what you did a week, a month, or year ago.

All in all this place is basic upon appearance but never judge a book by its cover.

That is all for now……
