Biography

Art Rosenbaum, born in 1938 in Ogdensberg, NY, is a painter, muralist, and illustrator, as well as a collector and performer of traditional American folk music. He earned his MFA in Painting at Columbia University and has worked in France on a Fulbright in Painting; he also has a Fulbright Senior Professorship in Germany. Among his exhibitions was the Corcoran’s 41st Biennial of American Painting, and his works are in many collections, including the New Orleans Museum of Art and the Columbus (GA) Museum.

He has executed mural commissions at the UCLA School of Law and the Center for Humanities and Arts at the University of Georgia. His solo show in 2000 at the Blue Mountain Gallery in New York was reviewed in Art in America.

His folk music field work in the South and Midwest has resulted in over 14 documentary recordings, several of which are on Smithsonian-Folkways; he wrote and illustrated two books, Folk Visions and Voices: Traditional Music and Song in North Georgia (1983), and Shout Because You’re Free: The African American Ring Shout Tradition on the Coast of Georgia (1998), both published by the University of Georgia Press.

A performer on a variety of folk instruments, he has appeared at numerous folk festivals both solo and with groups like the present-day Skillet Lickers, has cut three banjo/vocal LPs and CD’s, and has written and illustrated two instruction books on traditional banjo styles.
