The Mission of the Folk Art Alliance of Berks, Carbon and Schuylkill Counties at the Walk In Art Center to document, demonstrate, educate, and celebrate the folk and traditional arts of Berks, Carbon and Schuylkill Counties.
Definition of Folk Art (according to the National Endowment for the Arts): The folk and traditional arts are rooted in and reflective of the cultural life of a community. Community members may share a common ethnic heritage, cultural mores, language, religion, occupation or geographic region. These vital and constantly reinvigorated artistic traditions are shaped by values and standards of excellence that are passed from generation to generation, most often within family and community, through demonstration, conversation and practice.
