Weaving a Revolution:

a celebration of contemporary Navajo baskets



This special exhibition, developed by the Natural History Museum of Utah, showcases 150 contemporary Navajo baskets and tells the story of the people who made them and created a new art form in the process.

These baskets were made over a 30-year period by weavers from five families living in Navajo lands within Utah.  The exhibit vividly portrays the way a group of traditional weavers, a young designer using computer graphics, and a family of trading post proprietors came together to create dramatic, bold, and colorful Navajo baskets.


  • Opening Saturday, January 12, 2013, in the Museum’s Special Exhibits Gallery
  • On exhibit through Sunday, April 28
  • Included with regular Museum admission

Presenting Partner: Zions Bank
