Staff Picks: Favorites from the Collection

On display through Aug 18, 2024 at the Museum of International Folk Art

Staff Picks: Favorites from the Collection features objects that were selected by members of the Museum of International Folk Art (MOIFA) staff. This is the first exhibition that MOIFA has presented with work chosen by all staff. The selections highlight the diversity of the museum’s collection and present the perspectives of staff through their favorite works. The MOIFA collection has grown to over 162,000 objects, representing more than 100 countries since its founding in 1953. Staff made their selections by touring museum storage, researching work in the collection, picking pieces from previous exhibitions, or choosing from a geographic area.
