American folk art found its slow initial welcome extended permanently when the Renwick Gallery opened in 1972. The Renwick was one of many institutions around the country and world to feature the ADAQ exhibition and other fiber arts that had previously not been given artistic credit. This image depicts the artist’s own exhibition at the Bicentennial Festival of American Folklife. Smithsonian American Art Museum
