A must see exhibit in NYC of 19th century folk art. Check out the New York Times Review at http://mobile.nytimes.com/article?a=955549&f=29
Exhibit emphasizes sailor and seaport specific items. After all the ports drove New York City’s economy during the relevant time period.
However I would love to also see the fancy quilt and painted furniture.
Even better its all stored in 19th century row houses.
