In this issue, "Inside the Outside: Re-Thinking Folk Art," guest editor Jerry Cullum organizes a variety of feature stories and interviews exploring several questions surrounding vernacular art, most importantly ethical issues about preservation of vernacular environments and identity as it is connected to folk artists. Included are, among others, Rebecca Dimling Cochran's interview with the newly arrived curator of folk art at the High Museum, Lynne Spriggs; Barbara Schreiber's address to fellow academically trained artists on the market boom in folk art; William Arnett's controversial view of the development of African-American vernacular traditions and obstacles to public presentation of those traditions; Susannah Koerber's global look at vernacular environments; and Gylbert Cocker's examination of African-American vernacular creativity with the New Orleans' Mardi Gras Indians. Some notable reviews include Cathy Byrd's review of Maria Fernanda Cardoso's Cardoso Flea Circus; D. Eric Bookhardt's review of Feminine Products (No String's Attached) a show exploring fetishization and menstruation; and Lorrie Blair's review of The Dead, an exhibition of artists' photographs of the deceased.
