I haven't been back to Atlanta for a long time. I knew the major collector 
of 'folk art' when I lived there; I wrote a critical article for Art 
Papers on collecting, deconstructing the field/terminology which was and I 
think still is, highly problematic. But I haven't kept up with the city's 
culture unfortunately...

Did the museum used to have a satellite section with photography on one floor and "folk art" on the other? I do remember an afternoon of epiphany with work by Traylor and others in one room and discovering for the first time the photographs of Harry Callahan in another..
