American Perspectives: Storytelling at the Library

Everyone has stories to tell from the private and mutual experiences of their lifetime. Our folk and self-taught artists capture these stories in powerful visual narratives that offer firsthand testimonies to the unfolding story of America. Storytellers do the same thing with spoken words.

The Asheville Art Museum and Buncombe County Public Libraries are presenting a series of storytelling programs in August and September to highlight the Art Museum’s current American Perspectives exhibit.

Here’s the schedule for our storyteller series:

Tuesday, August 18 at 6pm
Larry Pearlman at the Black Mountain Library

Saturday, August 20 at 11am
John Toineeta at the East Asheville Library

Tuesday, August 23 at 6pm
Becky Stone and Catherine Yael Serota at the Enka-Candler Library

Tuesday, August 24 at 6pm

Thursday, August 25 at 6pm

Friday, August 26 at 2pm
Vixi Jill Glen at the Leicester Library

Thursday, September 1 at 6pm

This program was funded in part by a grant from the Art Bridges Foundation and based on an exhibition organized by the American Folk Art Museum. For further information on this series, contact your local library or visit
