Navajo Folk Art
Navajo folk art follows in the tradition of folk art of many cultures in that the individuals making the work are primarily self-taught. These artists work in a wide variety of media: found objects, painting, drawing, sculpture, weaving and assemblage. Folk art is non-utilitarian and non-ceremonial. It can be fantastical, personal, tell a story or comment on topical events but it still reflects the culture and daily life of its people.
