Museum of International Folk Art: Online Experiences

The collections at the Museum of International Folk Art in Santa Fe, New Mexico, like those of most museums, have experienced closures due to the pandemic. Nevertheless, the museum is currently providing a variety of online experiences for visitors. For example, the museum's YouTube channel offers a large selection of videos, many with local artists discussing topics such as mask making, Pueblo weaving, and Colcha embroidery. Back on the main site, readers can access virtual tours and exhibitions, including the Museum's blockbuster, Alexander Girard: A Designer's Universe. This exhibition showcases the work of the influential textile and interior designer. To really transport the museum experience into homes and schools, there are DIY folk art projects and lesson plans for teachers. In addition, the Museum's collection of more than 130,000 objects from all over the world can be searched and viewed.
