Folk Art
Universidad del Pacífico Exposición del arte popular peruano makes a thorough review of folk art, from Ayacucho retablos (minature sculptures) and Huancayo mates (carved gords), plus other treasures. It also has background music adapted from composers Celso Garrido Lecca and Roberto Márquez. Folk art is not static, but changes in response to social conditions -- and the tourism market. Tracking those changes can be revealing. Check out my story on arpillera naif art. In Spanish but good photographs makes it worth the visit for those who cannot read the text.
