This exhibition of American Folk Art of the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries included several unusual collections. SPIRIT OF AMERICA included weather vanes of every description and form, cast iron banks, ceramics, furniture, duck decoys and more. One of the highlights, a painting by Grandma Moses, was a favorite with visitors.
This exhibition was held in the Museum proper to complement the exhibition FOLK ART OF THE SOVIET UNION.
