Down on the Farm
Steve White’s folky spectacular gets a holiday twist
Steve White is a folk hero. Or at least he’s a hero of folk art. His Summer shows at his studio and home—aka the Folk Farm—have been a big hit with collectors of inexpensive and kooky pop-culturally inspired artwork for a decade. Now he’s hosting a holiday show, replete with live music, nifty gifts and photo ops with Santa for the kiddies.

He had just created Cycles of Life, a program that helps Native youth gain an appreciation for their bodies, environment and heritage.
