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
