The Austin Friends of Folk are most appreciative of the partnership with and support of Travis County. Our permanent collection of folk art is stored in the Archives of Travis County. In addition, the staff of Archives and Records has photographed and researched each piece of the art. Archivist Christy Costlow has assigned the research and record keeping to Hagan Barber and each piece has been photographed by Colleen Liedtke. Hagan has been successful in gathering information on each piece by identifying the artisan, the region or county where the item comes from and cataloging the entire collection, which has been beautifully photographed by Colleen.
You can view the art and learn the history associated with each piece by viewing this collection online: https://folkartmuseumcentraltx.org.
