The Second Sunday Folk Art Series features a different Folk or Traditional Artist each month. It is a program celebrating not only each artist’s art form, but more specifically, it is an exploration of their own journey within that art. Stories of the artists’ upbringing, their personal inspirations and teachers, their own artistic processes, and the way they have shared this art with others are also highlighted in the programs.
As a partner of the PA Council on the Arts’ Folk & Traditional Arts Initiative, The Everhart Museum is proud to feature these exceptional artists who have each continually shared their amazing art forms with the community for many decades.
AUGUST 2021 FEATURED ARTIST:
Gaston “Bonga” Jean-Baptiste, Traditional Haitian Music & Drumming,
