“Folk artists are connoisseurs of eloquent talk, storytelling, wit and humor, apt metaphor, the crafted object, fine food, the well-orchestrated celebration. In a word, folk artists are connoisseurs of the arts of living.” From the “An Accessible Aesthetic: The Role of Folk Arts and the Folk Artist in the Curriculum” by Barbara Kirschenblatt-Gimblett
