Wall Street Journal 28Dec99 A4
By Stuart Ferguson;
NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK -- The Museum of American Folk Art's current
major exhibit, Millennial Dreams: Vision and Prophecy in American Folk
Art, includes Mormon works among the 75 objects displayed. The exhibit
covers three centuries of American utopian communities, including the
Shakers and even Catholics in New Mexico in addition to Mormons.
The folk art displayed includes spirit drawings, carvings, banners,
quilts and other folk art. From the street, observers can see metal
angel weathervanes, similar to the angel that originally topped the
Mormon Nauvoo Temple.
Coincidentally, the museum is housed in a building owned by the LDS
Church. The Museum is located on the ground floor of the LDS Church's
building on Lincoln Square in New York City, across from the
world-famous Lincoln Center.
The exhibit continues at the Museum until May 14th.
