Summary "Florence Dibell Bartlett (1881-1954) founded the first international folk art museum, today the world's largest. The Museum of International Folk Art in Santa Fe is where this daughter of industry made manifest her belief that folk art is the bond among peoples of the world." "Folk Art Journey is the story of Bartlett and her extraordinary times growing up on Prairie Avenue in Chicago's fashionable South Side, becoming a cultural leader along with her siblings who themselves contributed substantially to American museums, and traveling the world to assemble both an important collection and a vision for a world in which humanity unites in diversity." "The Bartlett Collection features fine examples of European and Middle Eastern costumes and textiles, daily objects from Sweden and the Netherlands, English and American ceramics, Yemeni jewelry, Moroccan amulets, and Latin American wearables. A fascinating history of fifty years of collecting confirms that the founder's vision still guides the Museum of International Folk Art."--Jacket.
