Vibrancy of Tradition:  Folk Art of Oaxaca, México,
February 1 thru April 27, 2008
Location: Corning Gallery,
1 Wade Oval Drive, University Circle, Cleveland, Ohio

Oaxaca, México’s second-largest state, is famous for the creative folk art of its residents. The exhibition “Vibrancy of Tradition: Folk Art of Oaxaca, México” utilizes the exceptional William and Evelyn Ward Collection to demonstrate how this folk art tradition has endured over time.

Striking examples of textiles, terracotta figurines, pottery and woodcarvings by some of the region’s most highly regarded craftspeople are on display. They are accompanied by photographs the Wards took in Oaxaca. Many of the artists whose work is featured attained national and international reputations after the Wards collected their pieces.

“These traditions continue to be preserved, even though changes are taking place,” says Acting Associate Curator of Cultural Anthropology Adriann Balok, who organized the exhibition with intern Christine Salsgiver.
