With funding from the NEH, the Museum of International Folk Art has been creating folk art exhibitions to share with the American public since 1980. In addition to traveling the country, many of these exhibitions have had a lasting impact on the City of Santa Fe. A 1987 grant helped the museum create an exhibition exploring family, faith, and Hispanic heritage in New Mexico and Southern Colorado that remained on display for nearly 25 years. Another grant helped it create Recycled, Reseen: Folk Art From the Global Scrapheap an exhibition that featured art made from recycled materials. Twenty years later, the city continues to host Recycle Santa Fe, an annual art festival that supports artists and small business owners in the region. Recycle Santa Fe is a direct outgrowth of the exhibition.
