Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Florence Dibell Bartlett (1881-1953) was a Chicago heiress and folk art collector, who is best known for founding the Museum of International Folk Art (MOIFA) in Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA, the world's first international folk art museum. The museum was founded to express her belief that folk art is a bond between the people of the world. The museum opened to the public in 1953 and has gained national and international recognition as the home to the world's largest collection of folk art. Its collection of more than 135,000 artifacts is divided into four exhibition wings: Bartlett, Girard, Hispanic Heritage, and Neutrogena. Bartlett was the daughter of Adophus Bartlett, a wealthy partner in a large wholesale hardware business in Chicago that became part of True Value Hardware. Florence Bartlett's sister, Maie Bartlett Heard, was co-founder of the Heard Museum in Phoenix.show more
