American Folk Art Museum
Folk Art (formerly The Clarion) was published between winter 1971 and fall 2008. High-quality, digital, and text-searchable scans of each issue are available here or by clicking on the title of individual issues below.

Many back issues are also available for purchase for $10 plus shipping. To order, contact the shop at 212. 595. 9533, ext. 124, or

The digitization and launch of the online archive has been made possible by a generous grant from Museum Trustee Karin Fielding and her husband, Dr. Jonathan Fielding, which matched funding from the Friends of Heritage Preservation. These grants were spurred by a gift from the American Folk Art Society.
