Between the mid-nineteenth and mid-twentieth centuries, American folk artists created thousands of carved and painted wood sculptures in the form of utilitarian walking sticks. This exhibition of folk sculpture, organized by the Columbus Museum of Art, Ohio, provides a unique view of creativity and culture.

_CARVED AND WHITTLED SCULPTURE_ is part of the _AMERICAN ICONS_ Exhibition Series. Beginning in June 2014 and throughout 2015 the Museum will mount a series of exhibitions to celebrate the imagination, inspiration and innovation of Americans who have for more than three centuries created stunning works of folk art, craft and design – our shared American Icons. _AMERICAN ICONS_ is generously sponsored by Just Folk.
