Oppenhimer Collection of Folk Art

Oppenhimer Folk Art Collection  ©LCVA

This collection comprises masterful works made after 1950 by untrained artists who present wholly authentic and original images of their worlds. Their works—often made out of materials at hand, such as dirt, house paint, leftover linoleum and plywood—are expressive, imaginative and powerful. The collection transcends traditional notions of the “fine arts” to exemplify beauty, hope and the power of the human imagination
