This week on The Children’s Hour we learn all about Folk Art from Leslie Fagre, the education director at  the Museum of International Folk Art, and from Armando Ortega, an 8th generation weaver from the world renown Chimayo Ortega weaving family. Plus we’ve got a review of a book about a folk art family, and we hear from the Extinction Diaries who will update us about lemurs. All of this is mixed with great music, including a new track from SaulPaul.

The Children’s Hour is supported by the Cultural Services Department and the Urban Enhancement Trust Fund at the City of Albuquerque. This project is supported in part by an award from New Mexico Arts, a division of the Department of Cultural Affairs, and by the National Endowment for the Arts. We also have support from Electric Playhouse and numerous foundations also support our work including the Infinite Gesture Fund, The Limestone Fund, and The Laughing Buddha Fund. Thank you to our listeners who contribute to us through the Paypal Giving Fund, Paypal, and by subscribing to our podcasts on Patreon.
