Went on a lovely trip to Santa Fe this weekend. Fell in love with the International Museum of Folk Art, especially the Girard collection. Actually, I had seen the collection about 16 years ago and was so amazed at the size and that Alexander and Susan had collected all of these treasures themselves. I got lost inside each diorama; every scene escape worthy.
I particularly like this quote I found on the museum's website:
Toys represent a microcosm of man’s world and dreams.They exhibit fantasy, imagination, humor and love.They are an invaluable record and expression of mans ingenious unsophisticated imagination.-Alexander Girard
