An Encounter with American Folk Art Buildings

Thursday, September 19, 2019
7:00 PM
CofC's School of Sciences and Mathematics, Auditorium. 202 Calhoun Street

Join the Halsey Institute for an exciting evening learning about the fascinating history of American Folk Art Buildings from a short film Rendered Small by Marsha Gordon and Louis Cherry and a presentation by avid collectors W. Steven Burke and Randy Campbell who want to share their hand-made world.

These diminutive churches, movie theaters, houses, schools, factories, bowling alleys, and more were made during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries out of materials ranging from meticulously detailed tin and wood to cigar and Velveeta boxes. There will be an opportunity to ogle some of their collection up close, as they will be bringing select examples from their collection to the event. Your questions about this unique art form and the film describing it will follow the presentations.
