George Widener + the American Folk Art Museum

Enthralling. Intellectually provocative. Significant. These are just a few words that have been used to describe self-taught artist George Widener. Now you can support the museum by buying a work by this renowned artist.

Made in 2020, this colorful silk screen print is a great example of Widener’s unique visual language. Please consider purchasing this print and help AFAM continue its work to be an inclusive, diverse, accessible, and equitable museum.
