Friends of Oaxacan Folk Art (FOFA) seeks to preserve and promote the rich folk art traditions of Oaxaca, Mexico, which have been passed on from generation to generation, often over hundreds of years. Today, these traditions are endangered by economic challenges in the region that significantly impact the folk art community.
Young Artists Contest Winners Selected
FOFA Fifth Contest for Young Folk Artists – in collaboration with Museo Estatal de Arte Popular Oaxaca (MEAPO) -- was a smashing success! Nineteen 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizewinners were selected by expert judges, and 47 honorable mentions were awarded as well.
Upcoming Exhibition and Catalogue Presentation
The exhibition of winning pieces and presentation of the new FOFA catalogue will take place on December 8th at Museo Estatal de Arte Popular Oaxaca (MEAPO) in San Bartolo Coyotepec.
