Since 1987 Austin Friends of Folk Art has orbited the world of outsider art and folk culture. From indigenous art to indie films, from digiridoos to tangos, from passionately collected ethnic crafts to fabulously original yard art, we find, enjoy and support the best folk artists around.

We’re always looking for kindred spirits to travel, party and learn with us.
