"Sculptural in form, the façade recalls an abstracted open hand. The panels fold inward to create a faceted plane. The façade catches the glow of the rising and setting sun, subtly shifting with the weather and the seasons."

"The key feature of the slim American Folk Art Museum building is its faceted bronze-alloy facade."
