Description

Discover one hundred of the greatest folk artists practicing in the United States in Folk Masters: A Portrait of America. Over the past 25 years, photographer Tom Pich has traveled the country to the homes and studios of recipients of the National Endowment for the Arts' National Heritage Fellowship, the highest honor given to folk and traditional artists in the US. His portraits give us a glimpse into their art, their process, and their culture. While each image tells a story on its own, Barry Bergey, former Director of Folk and Traditional Arts at the National Endowment for the Arts, provides further insight into the lives of each featured artist as well as the remarkable stories behind each photograph. Folk Masters honors again the extraordinary women and men who simultaneously take the traditional arts to new heights while ensuring their continuation from generation to generation.

FOLK MASTERS
INTRODUCTION
IN 2009, PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER Tom Pich was lining up an unlikely combination of individuals to have a group portrait taken. He was working in the cavernous reception area of the recently opened Visitor Center of the United States Capitol, named Emancipation Hall to honor the many unnamed enslaved laborers who helped build the domed structure. The assembled group included, among others, a cowboy poet from Texas, a basketmaker from South Dakota, a contra dance caller from New Hampshire, a Tlingit weaver from Alaska, and a gospel quartet from Alabama. All had come to Washington, DC, to be honored with a National Heritage Fellowship, the highest form of federal recognition of folk and traditional artists, given by the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA). With tourists and congressional staffers wandering through this open area, and friends and relatives crowding around, Pich was having difficulty getting the artist honorees to pay attention and line up. His efforts were made more difficult by the sound of pneumatic drilling echoing off the polished stone walls and emanating from the top of a scaffold set up nearby. Pich went over to see if he could convince the workman to suspend efforts long enough for him to take the photograph. Looking up, he spied 2007 National Heritage Fellow Nick Benson.
Benson, a designer of script and a limner of names, titles, and quotes on many of the monuments and buildings in Washington, had been working largely unnoticed in the midst of ceremonial and routine activity below. He was inscribing the words In God We Trust on the interior facade of this hall, words meant to endure and, like the best of art, intended to convey truth and embody beauty. Beneath him, this diverse group of artists, none of them celebrities outside their communities, was posing for a portrait prior to an event honoring their contributions to our nation s artistic and cultural heritage. The National Heritage Fellowships recognize the better angels of our nature as Abraham Lincoln phrased it at his first inauguration, standing in front of that same Capitol building almost 150 years before. At the time Lincoln spoke, master craftsmen working in metal, wood, and stone, not unlike Nick Benson, were still in the process of finishing that structure, a building meant to house a government that was laboring to fulfill an idealized sense of itself-struggling with an uncertain vision of who we were and what we wanted to become. This collection of photographs is intended as one statement about ourselves, a century and a half later, as expressed through a portrayal of the excellence and diversity of our citizen artists. It is a portrait of America, still a work in progress.

HONORING NATIONAL LIVING TREASURES
Bess Lomax Hawes, the first director of folk arts at the NEA, recalled that in one of her early conversations with Nancy Hanks, chair of the agency, Hanks asked if the United States might develop a form of recognition of folk artists similar to the Japanese National Living Treasures program. Although Hawes was intrigued by the idea, she also had some reservations. Japan, unlike the United States, had a population that was relatively monocultural and benefited from a cultural heritage of much greater time depth. However, she initiated a series of discussions with folk arts specialists and panels. In 1982, following a period of five years of deliberation and worry-What should be the proper size of the award ($5,000 then and now $25,000)? Would the award create jealousy among artists? How should the artists be chosen? Is it appropriate to honor individuals in a community-based art form?-the National Heritage Fellowship Program was born.
Thirty-five years later, the National Heritage Fellowships have become one of the most lauded programs of the National Endowment for the Arts, an expression of our nation s aesthetic democracy and a keystone in our federal cultural policy. Anyone can nominate an artist for this recognition. Art forms eligible for consideration include crafts, dance, music, oral traditions, and visual arts, and are typically learned as part of the cultural life of a community whose members share a common ethnic heritage, cultural practice, language, religion, occupation, or geographic region. These traditions are generally considered to be shaped by the aesthetics and values of a shared culture and are passed from generation to generation, most often within family and community through observation, conversation, and practice. The guidelines for nomination are intentionally broad, allowing for the inclusion of new and evolving concepts of community, heritage, and excellence. Honorees are selected by a group that includes cultural specialists and one layperson, convened each year to consider the nominations.
