Folk art is the art produced by self-taught people. Every culture has its share of folk artists, yet art historians often deny folk art its rightful place alongside fine art. Ms. LaFate, a Jamaican-born, prize-winning folk artist, addresses this issue and explores the concepts of folk art and culture.

Audience members will have the opportunity to create their own folk art.
