The museum’s permanent collection of more than 8,000 objects focuses on works created by self-taught (as opposed to formally trained) artists in a variety of mediums and dating from the 18th century to today. Included are paintings, from portraits to genre scenes; quilts, needlework and other textiles; and 3-D works, such as weather vanes and whirligigs.
