The Art of Deception & photo of Duck Decoy

What are duck decoys, and how did they become sought-after collectibles? ‘The Art of Deception’ looks at hand carved decoys as an underappreciated form of American folk art. Although the golden age of carving decoys ended with the age of plastics making cheaper and lighter decoys, the art form is still practiced today across the Illinois River Valley.
