The Museum of International Folk Art (MOIFA) Design Council is a creative community of thinkers, makers and innovators that supports design-related activities and events at the museum. Council-related programming is dedicated to elevating and advocating for the aesthetic, social and global connections between traditional folk art and modern design.

Modern design is integral to the Museum of International Folk Art. From the start, the museum’s unique International-style architecture and mid-century modern interior were on the cutting edge, a space where the modern and the traditional commingled.

Alexander Girard’s obsession with color, form, function and pattern in folk art in his Multiple Visions: A Common Bond permanent exhibition at MOIFA has welcomed visitors to explore and engage with folk art in new and exciting ways. The experience is always sure to delight, inform, inspire and create a sense of wonder.
