"... The Newark Museum presents A World of Their Own: Twentieth-Century American Folk Art. It seems only fitting as the century draws to a close that the first museum to present nineteenth-century American folk art now looks at the twentieth-century counterpart. The differences between the nineteenth - and twentieth-century work are dramatic, as the catalogue essay makes clear. The art in the exhibition looks different - much of it looks very modern, very abstract. Obviously, it was made in a different spirit. The circumstances have changed so much, it is even questionable if the art should be called folk art. Through A World of Their Own, The Newark Museum continues to explore the vital issues in American art, and in the spirirt of John Cotton Dana, it continues to look at all kinds of art, placing equal emphasis on medium and genre." - quoted from Foreword.
