We celebrate and support folk artists!
As the county’s Regional Folklife Center, we celebrate and support the traditional arts.  We believe that folk artists, whether recent immigrants or long-time residents, express what it means to live in and to call Montgomery County home. That’s why we are proud to serve as one of only eight regional folklife centers in Maryland.

How we support artists and sustain traditions
Collaboration is the foundation of our work. Instead of telling artists what we’d like them to do, we ask, “How can the museum support you and sustain your traditions?” Through this approach, we work in partnership with folk artists across Montgomery County.
