Museum hours: Sat and Sun, 9am – 2.30pm
Adding to downtown Pittsboro’s slowly growing collection of small (pun intended) museums (the other can be found in our historic courthouse). Lisa Piper and Dave Clark, owners of Small B&B and Cafe, built the museum because of their passion for folk art culture, believing that the art’s accessibility and intrinsic qualities made it worth sharing.
The Small Museum of Folk Art includes pieces from area artists: Clyde Jones, Vollis Simpson, Jimmy Lee Sudduth, and Virgil Lee Johnson. The collection was originally a gift of more than 400 folk art pieces that had been gathered over a 30-year period. The museum is located on the same property as the Small B&B Café.
